Gas pipeline and emergency service, Wales & West Utilities, has started working in the Fabian Way area of Swansea.

The £325,000 work is essential to keep the gas flowing to heat homes and power businesses in the area so that people are safe and warm for generations to come.

It involves upgrading a gas pipe in the footpath on the eastbound carriageway of Fabian Way. Work will be ongoing until the end of February next year.

It has been agreed with Swansea Council that during off-peak hours (9.30am - 3.30pm) sections of one lane on the eastbound carriage of Fabian Way, from near Port Tennant Road to just past the junction of Wern Terrace, will be closed.

Wales & West Utilities Programme Controller, Adam Evans, is managing the work and said:

“We know that working on roads like this is not ideal, and we have planned the work to avoid rush hour to minimise any disruption to commuters.

“While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across Swansea. 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.

“We’ll have a team of gas engineers on site to make sure our work is completed as safely and as quickly as possible while keeping disruption to a minimum.”
