Northern Gas Networks (NGN) is warning drivers in Pudsey to be aware of roadworks ahead of starting essential work to ensure the continued supply of gas to customers.
Ageing metal pipework is now being replaced by new, more durable plastic pipes, to ensure a safe and reliable supply of gas to customers now while getting the network ready to transport alternative greener fuels in the future.
The work will start on Monday, 13 June and will run in several phases, expected to be complete by January 2023. It has been planned in collaboration with Leeds City Council.
In the first stage of the project, from Monday, 27 June, there will be temporary traffic lights on Uppermoor, at the junction of Tofts Road. These will be in place for approximately two weeks.
From Monday, 28 July there will be a road closure on South Parade, at the junction of Carlisle Road. This will be in place for approximately one week.
A signed diversion and advance warning signs will be put in place.
Steve Pigott, 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 Pudsey.
“We want to assure residents and road users that we will be working hard to complete this essential scheme as safely and as quickly as possible.”
