We'll shortly begin gas network upgrades along A287 Hindhead Road as part of work to ensure a continued safe and reliable supply of gas is delivered to local residents and businesses. Our engineers will be replacing our old metal mains with new plastic pipe.
Following close consultation with Surrey County Council, our project will now start on Monday 20 September - a week later than originally planned. We expect this work to take approximately four months to complete.
Our engineers will be working in sections along the A287. We'll begin at its junction with Heather Way and progress southbound to Critchmere Hill.
To ensure everyone's safety, temporary traffic lights will be in operation around our site as we carry out these essential network upgrades along the A287. We'll be manually controlling these lights between 7am and 7pm to assist with traffic flow.
We have additional engineering work to carry out in nearby High Pitfold and Hazel Grove. We're continuing to liaise with the local authority on these phases of work and will provide details on this page once it's confirmed.
We’re working closely with the UK Government and public health bodies to make sure we work safely and in line with expert advice during the coronavirus outbreak. We have extra safety precautions in place to protect our colleagues and our customers from catching or spreading the virus as we carry out these safety-critical improvement works in your community.
We understand 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, Hindhead residents and businesses will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come.
