Cambridge: Gas Leaks
Two gas leaks have been found in Cambridge.
National Grid engineers were alerted to the first leak, found in a pipe below East Road, near Anglia Ruskin University, yesterday (Monday).
They then installed temporary traffic lights and started digging up an area of East Road, which is one of Cambridge's busiest main roads, to allow them to repair the leak.
The temporary lights will stay in place until around 8pm tomorrow (Wednesday), when they will be moved around 200 metres down East Road, heading out of Cambridge.
This is because engineers have found a gas leak in another pipe outside Wellington House.
The first leak did not cause any disruption to homes or businesses, however it is not yet known whether the second leak is having an impact on anybody.
A National Grid spokesperson said: "This escape is being monitored to ensure the safety of the public and engineers will begin work once the traffic lights have been moved.
National Grid would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to residents and motorists and assure people that every effort will be made to complete the second repair as quickly as possible."
South Cambs MP Heidi Allen wants to be Mayor of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough.
