conwy gas works

Wales & West Utilities will shortly begin its final planned project in Conwy which will help to keep the gas flowing safely to heat and power local homes and businesses long into the future.

The final section of work to upgrade gas pipes in Conwy area will begin in the Mona Road area on 14 August. Barring any engineering difficulties, it will finish mid-September.

Wales & West Utilities has worked closely with Conwy County Borough Council to plan the scheme and it has been agreed that traffic management will be in place. This includes:

  • A road closure on Mona Road and three-way traffic lights at the junction of Mona Road, Penmaen Road and Penmaen Crescent (14 August – 5 September). During this time a diversion route, along Penmaen Road and Gorsfield Road, will be clearly signposted.
  • Multi-phased traffic lights at the junction of Bangor Road and Penmaen Road (6 – 19 September)

Wales & West Utilities Mark Morris is managing this gas pipe upgrade work and said:

We are delighted that this project brings our planned work to upgrade the gas pipes in Conwy to a close.

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 county. 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 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.

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.
