Work to upgrade part of the gas network in Queensferry will begin next week.

Wales & West Utilities will start the work in the Station Road area of the town on Monday 10 June and, barring any engineering difficulties, it will finish during August. The work is essential to keep the gas flowing safely and reliably to local homes and businesses, keeping people warm for generations to come.

Wales & West Utilities will be replacing the gas pipes on Station Road, between the junctions of Chester Road West and the Expressway Business Park. The gas emergency and pipeline service has liaised with Flintshire County Council, and it has been agreed that the side roads leading onto Station Road, including Pierce Street, Gladstone Road and Dundas Street, will be closed as work progresses.

Clear signage will be in place and all local businesses remain open, as usual.

Wales & West Utilities Adam Smith is managing this gas pipe upgrade work and said:

We know that working in areas like this is not ideal, but it really is essential to make sure we keep the gas flowing to homes and businesses in the area, and to make sure the gas network is fit for the future. We’ll have a team of gas engineers on site throughout the project to make sure our work is completed as safely and as quickly as possible while keeping disruption to a minimum.

While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across Queensferry. Whether it’s heating your home, making the family dinner or having a hot bath, we understand how important it is for your gas supply to be safe and reliable and there when you need it.

This work is essential to keep the gas flowing to local homes and businesses today, and to make sure the gas network is ready to transport hydrogen and biomethane, so we can all play our part in a green future.
