Gas Works In Biggleswade For A Year

National Grid begin a 12 month programme of work today to replace Biggleswade's gas network.

The company are spending ¬£1.2m to replace 7.5km of gas pipes in the London Road area.  The current iron pipes will be replaced with durable plastic pipes that have a lifespan of 80 years if left undisturbed.

A rolling prgramme of work will be carried out in London Road, Holme Court Avenue, Elm Road, Courtlands Drive, Sabel Close, The Dells, Dells Lane, Coppice Mead, Coopers Close, Mead End, Oak Crescent and Playfield Close.

The work that starts today affects London Road and Holme Court Avenue.  This means there will be temporary traffic lights at the junction of London Road, Drove Road and Eagle Farm Road for around three weeks.

National Grid construction engineer Dilbir Chana said: "This is essential work that will ensure local people continue to benefit from safe and reliable gas supplies for many years to come.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused by our work.  Every effort will be made to complete the work as quickly as we can to minimize disruption to local residents, businesses and motorists.  Work has been planned to start during the Easter holidays to help reduce any impact on the road network."
