Due to reports of ongoing gas leaks in the Etloe area of Blakeney, Gloucestershire we are currently carrying out work to upgrade a wider section of gas pipes in the area to ensure that customers have a safe and reliable gas supply.

This work, on the A48 from Newnham to Lydney, started in December and, barring any engineering difficulties, will be complete by the end of April. It will ensure the gas is kept flowing safely to heat and power local homes and businesses, keeping people warm for generations to come.

The work is being completed in phases and our current work on the A48 will be finished within two weeks. After this we will be moving to the final phase of work in Purlieu, which will involve traffic management in the area. Wales & West Utilities has liaised with Gloucestershire County Council to plan all works.

Wales & West Utilities Paul Ruhback is managing this gas pipe upgrade work. He said:

We would like to reassure the local community that we are working hard to complete the work as quickly, and safely, as possible and would like to thank them for their patience.

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