Today, Friday 27th October, Northern Gas Networks have advised us that today they will be reinstating their gas diversion trench and removing the temporary traffic signals on the A19.
The next phase is to take the gas diversion across the junction at the top of Fordlands Road.
This is taking place on the nights of Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st. They will excavate and install one half on Monday night and carry out the second half on Tuesday night. Access in and out of Fordlands Road will be maintained at all times.
These works and the associated traffic management are being managed by Northern Gas Networks under their licence to work in the carriageway.
There is likely to be some noise experienced by local residents.
We will endeavour to keep you informed with the news of any further periods of the use of temporary traffic signals by Northern Gas Networks as the works unfold.
Provision for pedestrians and others using the footpaths will be maintained during these operations. Please follow the directions provided by the signs.
