Transporting gas is a day-to-day essential service. Pipelines are largely out of sight and mostly out of mind, but when repairs are needed or pipes need to be upgraded, we have to dig up roads or footpaths. 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.
We are sorry about the inconvenience caused and thank road users for their patience while essential emergency works are carried out.
Friday 24 November - Dean Lane, Merstham
Our emergency repairs to the gas main in Dean Road, Merstham are progressing well.
We’ve completed repairs to one section of our main but we’ll need to return on Monday for further work. To avoid disruption to motorists, we’ll be reopening the road this evening for the weekend.
Wednesday 22 November - A217 Brighton Road, Banstead
We need to carry out urgent repairs to our gas network in the A217 Brighton Road this weekend.
To ensure the safety of the public and our engineers, the A217 will be reduced to one lane in both directions at its junction with Fir Tree Road and Bolters Lane. There will be no access to Fir Tree Lane from the A217 southbound or from Bolters Lane. Fir Tree Lane can still be accessed from the A217 northbound. Signed diversions will be in place from Saturday 25 November and all being well, we hope to remove our lane closures by Sunday evening.
We will be using our innovative core and vac technology to minimise disruption while we carry out our urgent repairs.
Wednesday 8 November - Yester Road, Chislehurst
Our emergency repairs on the gas main in Yester Road are progressing well. The repairs on this section of our network are particularly complex and we’re currently working on our gas main on the west side of the bridge. To ensure the continued safety of the public and our engineers around our work area, temporary traffic lights are in place at the bridge entrance. We will be manually controlling these lights during peak hours to keep the traffic moving.
