The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £220,000 to upgrade the gas distribution network around York Recycling, Forest Lane, York.

The project, which started on Monday 7 January 2019, is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the gas infrastructure in the area to ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers for years to come.

In order for the final phase of work to be carried out safely and efficiently, it has been necessary to install four-way traffic lights on the A19 at the junction of Tollerton Road and Sykes lane, from today (Monday 25 February 2019) for the remainder of the work.

A temporary 40mph speed limit will be in place during this time and motorists are advised to leave extra time for travel.

Chris Cunniff, Site Manager for Northern Gas Networks said: “In order to compete the work safely and efficiently, it is necessary to extend the project by a week, with the work now scheduled for completion on Friday 8 March 2019.

“We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank everyone for their continued support and patience.”

Shops and businesses in the area will remain open as usual while the work is underway.

NGN’s Customer Care Officers have been door-knocking local residents and businesses to make customers aware of the work, while on-site signage will advise motorists of the work taking place.

Regular updates will also be available on NGN’s website northerngasnetworks.co.uk, Twitter @NGNgas and Facebook @northerngasnetworks.

For further information about the project please contact NGN’s Customer Care Team on 0800 040 7766 or email: customercare@northerngas.co.uk.
