  • Divert a gas pipe

    If your work is over or close to one of our gas pipes, we may need to visit your site and you may need to pay for a diversion of the gas pipe.

    • Before starting work, contact us by email and send us detailed plans to diversionrequests@wwutilities.co.uk. We'll let you know if a diversion is needed and how much it will cost within 30 working days.
    • If we do have to divert a gas pipe, we'll usually start work 100 working days after payment - though depending on how complicated the project is, this may take longer.
