We look after more than 74,000 kilometres of pipes across our network. Making sure these pipes deliver your gas safely and reliably means that we need to upgrade or repair them at times. We know that roadworks can be frustrating, but our essential work keeps you, your family and local community safe.
You can find more about our work in your area by searching on roadworks.org (please note that this is a third party website).
We’re working on a 30-year programme to upgrade our gas network. We’re replacing old metal pipes with new plastic pipe to ensure homes and businesses in the south of England and across Scotland continue to receive a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come. Here’s some of our major upgrade projects:
Broadstairs, Albion Street
Edinburgh, Broughton Street
Edinburgh, Saughton Road North
Erksine, Erskine Bridge
Lambeth, A23 Brixton Road
Peckham, Rye Lane
Raynes Park, West Barnes Lane
You can find more information about all our other gas network upgrade projects at roadworks.org.
When upgrading pipes or installing a new connection, we can plan the roadworks in advance. But when safety is at stake we must respond quickly and efficiently, and this may mean having to carry out streetworks at very short notice or at night. Safety is at the heart of all we do, but we’re sorry if our emergency repairs inconvenience you.
