A ROAD will be closed while a £25,000 gas network upgrade gets underway. Northern Gas Networks (NGN) is due to start the work on November 29, with an estimated duration of two weeks.

It will see 157 metres of old metallic main replaced with durable plastic material, to ensure the continued and safe supply of gas for the future.

There will be a road closure in place at the junction of Rooley Lane and Mayo Avenue. A full, signed diversion will be in place.

Anna Mycoe, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these works, and thank our customers for their patience and support in getting them completed as quickly as possible."
