Wales & West Utilities has started a gas pipe investment scheme in the Rhiwbina area of Cardiff and is inviting local residents to an information day to find out more about the scheme.

The £2 million investment work involves replacing 15 kilometres of old metal gas pipes with new plastic ones throughout Rhiwbina during the remainder of 2016 and 2017. The work will bring a safe and reliable gas supply to the area for years to come.

The scheme, which started in Brynteg at the end of July, is being carried out by Wales & West Utilities contract partner, Amec Foster Wheeler.

An information event is taking place at Rhiwbina Baptist Church on 13 September between 2pm -7pm. Members of the local community are invited to view plans and learn more about the work and when work is anticipated to take place in local streets. Members of the project team will also be on hand to answer any questions.

This essential work is part of the company’s multi-million pound, 30-year gas pipe investment programme which began in 2002. Old metal pipes within 30 metres of buildings are being replaced with new long-lasting plastic pipes with a lifespan of more than 80 years, to make sure homes and businesses continue to receive a safe and reliable gas supply now and in the future.

Wales & West Utilities Programme Controller, Francis Kirk, said:

“We know that working in areas like this one is not ideal, but it is essential in supporting the area into the future. We hope that members of the local community will come along to our information event to find out more about the plans and how the work will impact them.

“We have worked closely with The City of Cardiff Council to carefully plan this work and will be doing all we can to minimise the disruption caused. All businesses in the area will be open as usual throughout our work and we will accommodate trade deliveries.”

Once we start work, people can always approach the team on site with any questions. Our Customer Service Team is also ready to take your call if you have any questions about our work.
