Details about the project
The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £717k to upgrade the gas distribution network in Withernsea.
This is to ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for many years to come.
The essential project to replace 7km of ageing metallic gas pipe network with new plastic pipes started on Waxholme Road on Monday 3 June 2019, and is on track to be completed by May 2020.
Care has been given to avoid busy tourist areas during the summer months, and the scheme has been closely planned in conjunction with East Riding County Council.
Site Manager for Northern Gas Networks Gerry Hart said: “We would like to thank all our customers for their patience whilst we complete these essential works. We know that no one likes roadworks and we are very sorry for the inconvenience caused while we carry out this planned upgrade to the gas pipes”.
“Many residents will remember the incident back in 2017, when the town lost gas supply for three days. By investing nearly three quarters of a million pounds in an improved local network, we will be creating a more modern, efficient and robust network, which will serve Withernsea for decades to come.”
