Chichester, College Lane area

Start date: 28 May 2019

Duration: 24 weeks 


We’re investing £320,000 to upgrade the gas network in the College Lane area of Chichester.

This essential work involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.

In agreement with West Sussex County Council, our project will start on Tuesday 28 May 2019 and last approximately 24 weeks. It will involve temporary road closures in College Lane and temporary traffic lights installed in Spitalfield Lane.

Additional information, including where we'll be working, can be found in our customer leaflet below.

The Glorious Goodwood Festival and The Goodwood Revival Meeting are two local events taking place during our project. We’ll ensure we minimise any inconvenience for those attending by ensuring no traffic management is in place while these events are in progress.

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