We’ll shortly be starting a project to upgrade the gas network in your area. This essential work involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.
Recently, we carried out multiple emergency repairs on these mains, which are located on a busy route. We’ve decided, in agreement with West Dunbartonshire Council, that replacing these pipes would result in less disruption overall and give Dumbarton residents and businesses a reliable gas supply for many years to come.
Our work will start on Tuesday 7 May 2019 and last approximately 17 weeks. Our project will be carried out over three phases to minimise inconvenience.
On Tuesday 7 May, we’ll be working in Castlegreen Street for three weeks. For everyone’s safety, Castlegreen Street and Greenhead Road will be closed at their junctions with Glasgow Road.
From Tuesday 28 May, we’ll be working at Glasgow Road’s junction with Castlegreen Street and Greenhead Road for six weeks. Due to the position of our gas main, we’ll need to temporarily close Glasgow Road both ways. Castlegreen Street and Greenhead Road will also remain closed as in phase one.
From Tuesday 9 July, Glasgow Road, Castlegreen Street and Greenhead Road will be reopened. We’ll be working in Castlegreen Street near the fire station for eight weeks. Temporary two-way traffic lights will be in place while we work.
Additional information about our work can be found in our customer leaflet.
We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Dumbarton residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
