Gas emergency and pipeline service, Wales & West Utilities, has finished work to upgrade part of the gas network in the St Werburghs area of Bristol on time.

The £104,000 investment work was essential to keep the gas flowing safely and reliably to local homes and businesses, keeping people warm for generations to come. It started in January and involved work in the Roseberry Avenue area.

Wales & West Utilities liaised with Bristol City Council to plan the work, which involved a traffic management in the area. Now that the work is complete, all traffic management has been lifted.

Wales & West Utilities Simon Lee managed this gas pipe upgrade work and said:

We’re happy to have finished this work on time and want to thank everyone who lives and works in the area for bearing with us while we completed this essential work.

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