Northern Gas Networks (NGN) is carrying out essential work to replace the ageing metallic main on Spring Bank West.
The old pipe will be replaced with a more durable plastic main which will ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in Hull for many years to come.
The ageing main has undergone several recent emergency repairs, so has now been prioritised for urgent replacement, starting on Monday 10 May. The work has been planned in collaboration with Hull City Council and Network Rail and is expected to last up to four weeks.
So that engineers can carry out the work safely and efficiently, and to protect the public, some traffic management measures will be put in place for the duration of the work.
A section of Spring Bank West will be closed between the junction with Chanterlands Avenue and Calvert Road, this will affect both eastbound and westbound sides of the carriageway. Residents and businesses will have access. Signs will be displayed for motorists and a full signed diversion put in place.
Russel Kaye, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these essential works. However, it is vital we complete them in order to continue to maintain a safe and reliable gas supply to the residents of Hull.
“NGN is continuing to carry out essential services while following strict Government guidelines for safe distance working and observing health and safety guidance during the current lockdown in England.
“We want to assure residents and road users that we will be working hard to complete this scheme as safely and as quickly as possible.”
