The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is carrying out essential works to upgrade the gas distribution network in and around Marton Road, Middlesbrough.

The £10,000 project is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the gas infrastructure in the area and involves connecting a gas service onto an existing gas main.  This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.

NGN is working closely with Middlesbrough Council to plan the work and to minimise the inconvenience caused.

For the works to be carried out safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to implement temporary traffic management measures in and around Marton Road at the junction of Marton Way.   The remaining works have been planned to coincide with the school Easter holidays when we expect traffic in the area to be lighter than normal.

From Friday 12th April 2019 until Monday 15th April 2019, there will be two lane closures in place on Marton Road for the full duration of the scheme and a signed diversion route will be in place for motorists.

It’s expected these works will cause some delays to journey times, so motorists are advised to leave extra time for travel whilst the temporary traffic signals and road closures are in place. As the works are also directly outside James Cook University Hospital extra time should be allowed for those attending.

NGN’s Customer Care Officers have been door-knocking residents and businesses to make customers aware of the project’s latest phase, 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.

Shops and businesses in the area will remain open as usual throughout the project.

Steven Storey, Site Manager for Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with Middlesbrough Council to carefully plan these works and will be doing all we can to minimise disruption to customers.

“We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience customers may encounter and thank everyone for their support as we work to complete this project as safely and quickly as possible.”
