    Start date: 23 July 2018
    Approximate duration: Six weeks

     

    We are working to upgrade the gas network in the A245 Stoke Road area of Cobham.

    We are investing £35,000 to replace our old gas mains and services with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local area.

    In consultation with Surrey County Council, we will start our work on Monday 23 July and is expected to last approximately six weeks.

    We will first carry out some investigative work on Stoke Road due to inaccuracies in the historic plans. We will then be able to confirm what traffic management is required while we upgrade our pipes.

    It’s likely we’ll need to install temporary two-way traffic lights on Stoke Road, close to its junction with Leigh Hill Road, at some point during our project. This will ensure everyone’s safety around our work area. If temporary traffic lights are required, we will be manually operating the traffic lights at peak times to maintain traffic flow along Stoke Road.

    We also need to close the footpath at the junction of Stoke Road and Leigh Hill Road. In consultation with Elmbridge Borough Council, we have arranged a temporary footpath across Tilt Common to maintain pedestrian access.

    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, Cobham residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
