• 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).

    Major gas network upgrades

     

    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.

     

     

    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. 

    You can find more details about our emergency repairs at roadworks.org.

     

    Thursday 17 January – Queen Elizabeth Road, Kingston Upon Thames

    We're continuing with road resurfacing work in Queen Elizabeth Road after completing several network repairs in the area.

    For everyone's safety around our site, the two right-hand-side lanes of Queen Elizabeth Road remain closed to motorists just past its junction with Birkenhead Avenue.

    All being well, we expect to be able to safely reopen all lanes and clear our site by tomorrow evening (18 January).

     

    Wednesday 16 January – Staplehurst Road (A229), Marden

    We’re continuing to carry out urgent repairs to our gas network in Staplehurst Road (A229), Marden, near The Style Bridge.

    To allow our engineers to carry out this urgent work as quickly and safely as possible, we’ve temporarily closed the A229, Staplehurst Road in both directions. 

    A signed diversion is in place for motorists via:

    • A229: Maidstone Road, Station Road, High Street, Cranbrook Road, Knoxbridge, Rocks Hill, Camden Hill, the Common, Wilsley Pound
    • A262: Sissinghurst Road, The Street, Biddenden Road, Sissinghurst Road, High Street
    • A272: High Street, North Street, Headcorn Road
    • A274: Biddenden Road, Wheeler Street, Station Road, High Street, North Street, Mill Bank, Maidstone Road, Headcorn Road, Sutton Valance Hill, North Street, Maidstone Road, Sutton Road
    • A229: Loose Road, Linton Hill, Staplehurst Road

     

    All being well, we hope to complete our repair by the end of tomorrow (17 January). We will then move on to restoring the road surface at which point we can reopen the road under temporary two-way traffic lights.

    We understand this is major route and so will be working hard through the night to complete our repairs as soon as possible.
