Essential upgrade to gas distribution network on Skellgarths, Ripon

Read

The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), will be investing £20,000 to upgrade the gas distribution network at Skellgarths, Ripon.

The project 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 in the area for years to come.

The project has been carefully planned in conjunction with North Yorkshire County Council to minimise any disruption caused.

Work will begin on Monday 21 January 2019 and is scheduled to last for approximately one week.

In order for works to be carried out safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to implement a road closure on the B6265 Skellgarths, for the full duration of works.  The road closure will be in place from the junction of Wellington Cottage to outside number 2 Skellgarths.  Access for residents at Wellington Cottage will be maintained.  There will be no through road for residents at Water Skellgate.

A signed diversion route will be in place for other road users.

It’s expected these works will extend journey times, so motorists are advised to leave extra time for travel whilst the road closure is in place.

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.

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