• Roadworks

     

    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).

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 

    Maidstone, Tonbridge Road

    Oxford, Banbury Road

    Peckham, Rye Lane

    Raynes Park, West Barnes Lane 

    West Malling, Malling Road

    Emergency gas pipe repairs

     

    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.

    We're carrying out emergency repairs to our gas network at Carmunnock Road's junction with Dougrie Road in Castlemilk, Glasgow.

    For everyone's safety while we work, motorists will be unable to access Dougrie Road from Carmunnock Road. Vehicles will however be able to access Carmunnock Road from Dougrie Road.

    It's too early to say at this stage how long our work will take to complete however, the work is likely to continue throughout this week and into the weekend. We'll keep you updated with our progress.
