Wales & West Utilities is saying ‘bye’ to Budleigh Salterton after completing essential gas pipe investment work in the area.

The £184,000 investment work started in May and involved upgrading nearly 1.5km of old metal pipes to new plastic ones in the Moormead area of the town. It will make sure that local homes and businesses continue to receive a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.

Ahead of the scheme Wales & West Utilities worked closely with Devon County Council to plan the work and keep disruption to a minimum.

Wales & West Utilities Programme Controller, Dominic Tester, managed the work and said:

“We’d like to thank the people of Budleigh Salterton for their patience. This work was essential to keep the gas flowing to heat homes and power businesses in the area and to make sure the gas network is fit for the future.”
