Roadworks in your area

We look after more than 74,000 kilometres of pipes across our network. Making sure these pipes deliver your gas safely and reliably means that we need to upgrade or repair them at times. We know that roadworks can be frustrating, but our essential work keeps you, your family and local community safe.

Planned work


Thursday 11 July - Bow Road, Wateringbury

We’re carrying out emergency upgrades to our gas network in Wateringbury.

This essential work follows on from emergency repairs carried out last month and has been planned in consultation with Kent County Council.

In order to carry out our works safely, we have closed Bow Road, at its junction with Tonbridge Road, in both directions. A signed diversion is in place for motorists via the A26 Tonbridge Road, Seven Mile Lane and Maidstone Road.

We have also closed Gibbs Hill at the junction with Maidstone Road, Nettlestead, and Pizien Well Road at the junction with A26 Tonbridge Road. These junctions are closed for safety reasons to prevent the use of unsuitable narrow country roads as a diversion route.

All going well, we aim to complete our work, reinstate the road surface and reopen all the roads as normal at the end of the day on Monday 15 July.

 

Friday 14 June - Holmquarry Road, Kilmarnock

We've recently been carrying out emergency repairs to our gas main in Holmquarry Road, Kilmarnock. We've now taken the decision, in close consultation with North Ayrshire Council, to replace a section of the gas main in Holmquarry Road with new modern plastic pipe. 

This will ensure a safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come and help prevent  future disruption caused by any unplanned, urgent repairs.

To complete our work safely we'll need to close Holmquarry Road, between its junctions with Burnside Street and Greenholm Street, from Monday 17 June for six weeks.

All local businesses in the area will be accessible and open as normal during this work.

We'd like to thank Kilmarnock businesses and residents for your continued support and patience.

 

Emergency gas pipe repairs

When upgrading pipes or installing a new connection, we can plan the roadworks in advance. But when safety is at stake we must respond quickly and efficiently, and this may mean having to carry out streetworks at very short notice or at night. Sometimes we have to start work before the information filters through to our map. When that happens, we’ll add that information here.

 

Friday 12 July - A25 Reigate Road

We're carrying out urgent gas network repairs along the A25 near to its junction with Pixham Lane.

To ensure everyone's safety, we've needed to install temporary three-way lights around our work area. These lights are being manually operated between 7am and 7pm to manage traffic flow in the area.

We're aware of nearby resurfacing work on the A24 and the weekend closure of the M25 that could impact travel times in the area over the weekend. Please allow additional time for your journeys.

 

Tuesday 25 June - Sandhurst Road, Tunbridge Wells

We're carrying out urgent repairs to our gas network in Sandhurst Road, Tunbridge Wells.

For everyone's safety around our work area, we've installed temporary three-way traffic lights at the junction with Brook Road.

It's too soon to say how long our repair will take but we'll provide updates here.

 

Monday 10 June - Verwood Road, Three Legged Cross

We’re carrying out emergency gas main replacement work in Verwood Road, Three Legged Cross. Due to unforeseen engineering challenges requiring deeper excavations and ordering new parts, we’ll now be completing our work one week later than previously expected.

We will complete our work and be off the road by Friday 14 June. For everyone's safety, temporary traffic lights will remain in operation until then.

Further replacement work is planned to replace all of the remaining old cast iron gas mains along Verwood Road. This project is currently being planned and we’ll communicate with residents and the wider community as soon as we have confirmed start dates.    

 

Tuesday 28 May - Station Road, North Berwick

We’re continuing emergency repairs to our gas network in the Station Road area of North Berwick.

For everyone’s safety, Station Road remains closed both ways at its junction with Station Hill and Dirleton Avenue.

Our repairs in this location are complex due the depth of our gas main, and the close proximity and number of cables and pipes of other underground utilities.

Due to the nature of this emergency work, it’s still too difficult to say when our work will be completed. Our engineers will continue to work seven days and extended hours whenever possible.

 

Tuesday 21 May - Friars Lane, Inverness

We're carrying out emergency repairs in the Friars Lane area of Inverness.

For everyone's safety, we'll be installing temporary traffic lights at the junction with Academy Street and Chapel Street.

We're anticipating our work at this location could take two weeks.

Please leave extra time for your journey as this is a busy route, especially during rush hour.

 

Thursday 16 May - Woolwich Road, London,SE7

We're carrying out emergency repairs in the A206 Woolwich Road, London.

For everyone's safety, Woolwich Road is closed westbound between Eastmoor Street and Woolwich Church Street. A signed diversion is in place for motorists.

Please leave extra time for your journey and please note that local buses are also being diverted.

It's too early to say how long repairs will take to complete however, the road is likely to remain closed westbound into the weekend.

We'll post updates on our progress here.



Tuesday 23 April - Popley Way, Basingstoke

We’re carrying out emergency work in Popley Way, Basingstoke, to improve the gas pressure in our network. This essential work involves increasing the size of the gas service to Apollo Hotel.

To ensure everyone’s safety, we have closed Popley Road one-way, for motorists entering Popley Way from Aldermaston Roundabout. A signed diversion route is in place. Motorists exiting Popley Way onto the roundabout are unaffected.

All going well, we hope to complete our work, restore the road surface and reopen Popely Way as normal by Wednesday 1 May.

We apologise for any disruption and would like to thank anyone affected for your patience while we carry out this urgent work.


Thursday 18 April - Strathmore Street, Perth

We're carrying out urgent network repairs at the junction of Strathmore Street and Isla Road.

Our engineers are working to fix a leak and there's temporary traffic lights in place around our work area to ensure everyone's safety and manage traffic flow.

It's too early to say how long it will take to complete this work but updates will be provided here.

 

Friday 12 April - Plumstead High Street

We need to renew our gas network in Plumstead High Street.

Following discussion with Greenwich Council, we have installed three-way traffic lights at this location and implemented a closure of Woodhurst Road. One of the team will man the lights from 7am until 7pm to minimise disruption.

All being well, the work within the road closure should be completed and cleared by 26 April, at which time we will set up a smaller road closure in Camrose Street with some carriageway incursion in Plumstead High Street. The second phase should be completed in approximately three weeks.

Our team is working seven days a week to ensure any disruption to the local community is minimised.
