gas investment Abergavenny

Wales & West Utilities is set to start work on a £40,000 gas investment programme which is set to benefit homes and businesses in Abergavenny. The work, which will start on Sunday 1 November, will bring a safe and reliable gas supply to the area for years to come.

The company will be replacing more than 180 metres of old metal gas pipes with new long lasting plastic ones, and it is anticipated the work will take approximately 4 weeks to complete.

As part of the scheme our teams will be working in High Street; Market Street; Lion Street and Frogmore Street. During the second week of the work there will be a road closure in place at the junction of Market Street and Monk Street. A diversion route will be clearly signposted and deliveries to Market Street and High Street will be accommodated.

This work and the traffic management needed to make sure pedestrians, road users and our workforce are kept safe has been agreed with the local authority

Ahead of the work, plans for the four week investment program will be available at a public drop in event being held on Tuesday 27 October at Council Chambers, Town Hall, Cross Street, Abergavenny, NP7 5HD from 14.00-19.00. Entrance via the One Stop Shop. Members of our team will be on hand to answer any questions people may have.

This essential work is part of the company’s multi-million-pound 30-year mains replacement programme, across Wales and the south west of England, which began in 2002. Old metal pipes within 30 metres of buildings are being replaced with new long-lasting plastic pipes with a lifespan of more than 80 years. 

Wales & West Utilities programme controller, Melanie Hole, said:

“We are working to get the job finished as safely and as efficiently as we can while minimising disruption for local people and businesses.

“We have agreed with the local authority that we will do this work now, before the area is regenerated ahead of the Eisteddfod in 2016. All local businesses will be open as usual while we are working and we will accommodate trade deliveries. We’ve also visited businesses to understand their individual needs and requirements.

“This work will support Abergavenny now and into the future, and we’d like to thank local people for bearing with us whilst we carry out this essential work.”
