Earley, Reading, Church Road

We're upgrading our gas network in the Church Road area of Earley, Reading. Our trusted contractor, I & G Contractors, will be working on this project on our behalf.

Work will start on Monday 3 June and will be completed in different phases, with some of the work being carried out during the school summer holiday.

 

Woodlands Avenue

Half of our engineering team will start work in Woodlands Avenue on Monday 3 June for approximately four weeks. To safely complete this work, we'll need to ask motorists to ‘give and take’ past our worksite and install temporary multi-way traffic lights at the junction of the Orangery.

We will need to return later to make a connection on the road leading to the university, but we will notify residents about this work nearer the time.

 

Anderson Avenue

The remaining half of our engineering team will start in Anderson Avenue on Monday 3 June. We will be asking road users to ‘give and take’ past our worksite to allow traffic to flow safely.

 

Church Road

We will be working in Church Road from Monday 1 July for approximately nine weeks. To safely complete this section of our work, we'll need to temporarily close Church Road in sections.

We'll start working between the junctions of Mays Close and Eastcourt Avenue, moving along the road from Eastcourt Avenue to Woodlands Avenue.

Once we have worked past Woodlands Avenue, we will install temporary traffic lights to allow road users to safely pass our work site up to the junction of Culver Lane. We also have a small section of work in Oldfield Close.

Access will be maintained for residents and businesses and a signed diversion will be in place when the road is closed.

 

Fairview Avenue and Eastcourt Avenue

Providing our work is able to progress as planned, we will replace the pipes in Fairview Avenue and Eastcourt Avenue once we've completed our work in Church Road. However, it may need to return to complete work in these roads at a later date.

We'll contact residents after our work in Church Road has been completed to confirm if work in these roads will be going ahead.
