Please be aware that emergency gas works are being carried out on Bochum Parkway to repair a leak in a gas pipe.
The works are being carried out adjacent to the pedestrian crossing at the top of Dyche Lane.
These works are unrelated to the road works but are having an additional impact on the traffic in the area.
The works are being carried out by Cadent, a gas network contractor.
New to the nature of the work Cadent have been granted permission to close a traffic lane on the Bochum Parkway 24hr a day. This is causing increased traffic delays during the rush hour periods.
At this time we do not know how long the repair to the pipe will take.
Please also be aware that the fault with the pedestrian crossing signals was resolved yesterday afternoon.
We acknowledge that construction sites can be attractive places for children.
Please be assured that once underway, the different areas of works will be securely fenced at all times to ensure the safety of the public. Deep excavations within our works, for drainage for example, will have further fencing erected around them.
Please be aware of slow moving plant and wagons making deliveries and accessing different areas of the site from the live carriageway.
Please be mindful of the speed limit of 40 mph when driving through the works.
