Householders in parts of west Leeds are being asked to minimise their gas usage while repair work continues.
Northern Gas Networks engineers are today working on-site to repair a medium pressure gas main damaged yesterday (Friday, August 10) by a third party in the Armley Ridge Road area.
As a result of this we have encountered an issue with a medium pressure gas main in the area of Lea Farm Mount in Kirkstall, with additional teams working to repair the damage. Northern Gas say they will be working around the clock to get this work completed as soon as they can.
To help them carry out this essential repair work Northern Gas are asking customers living in the areas listed below to only use gas when absolutely necessary.
Affected areas are:
Adel, Bramley, Burley, Cookridge, Farnley, Hawksworth Wood, Headingley, Horsforth, Hyde Park, Kirkstall, Weetwood and Yeadon.
Gareth Mills, On-site Customer Support Manager, said:
“Our teams are working hard to repair the damage to both medium pressure gas mains with work expected to continue over the weekend. We thank customers for their cooperation and patience.”
