SGN (the gas company) tell us that there will be road works to upgrade the main gas pipe starting next Monday 7 September.
Over the coming five weeks, the gas pipe will be replaced in two phases:
Phase one – lasting approximately three weeks
Engineers will be working on A217 Oldfields Road from number 44 to 66. The outside southbound lane on the A217 will be closed. For the duration of the project, a dedicated cycle lane will be created at the side of the carriageway, leaving the existing cycle path available for pedestrians. Access to Collingwood Road will be maintained.
Phase two – lasting approximately two weeks
Once complete, the gas pipe will be upgraded on Collingwood Road from number 205 to 231. For traffic to flow safely, temporary multi-way traffic lights will be installed on this section of the road. The bus stops near the junction with Alexandra Avenue will be suspended while the work is carried out.Leave a comment
