We know that during the coronavirus outbreak, our communities will rely on us now more than ever to keep them safe and warm. The safety of our communities and our employees will remain our number one priority in the weeks and months ahead.
We need to carry out safety-critical work to upgrade the gas network in your area. This needs to go ahead now, rather than wait until the pandemic passes, to ensure your local community continues to receive a safe and reliable gas supply.
Following close consultation with Kent County Council, our project will start on Monday 1 March 2021 and last approximately seven weeks.
To ensure everyone's safety, we'll need to temporarily close Mill Lane between its junctions with Moon Hill and Coombe Drive. A signed diversion will be in place via Church Hill and Eythorne Road.
We’re working closely with 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 our safety-critical project.
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 our work in Morden is complete, residents and businesses will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come.
