Work to upgrade the gas pipes in the Park Lane area of Frampton Cotterell will shortly take place.

Wales & West Utilities will be starting work on the 22 July to ensure the gas is kept flowing safely to heat and power local homes and businesses, keeping people safe and warm for generations to come. Barring any engineering difficulties the work will be complete at the beginning of September.

As part of the work Wales & West Utilities has liaised with South Gloucestershire Council, and it has been agreed that Park Lane will be closed between the junctions of Park Avenue and Rodwell Avenue throughout. Access for residents will be maintained.

Wales & West Utilities Simon Lee is managing this 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.

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