Harrogate commuters are facing two months of roadworks as Northern Gas Networks upgrades pipework in the town.
Work will begin tomorrow (Tuesday November 19) to replace 650m of ageing metal gas mains in Harrogate with new durable plastic pipes.
It is estimated that it will take two months for the work to be completed and temporary traffic lights will be placed on Skipton Road between Regent Avenue and Devonshire Place for a three-week period.
Garry Farnhill, Customer Operations Area Manager, Northern Gas Networks said; “We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding, and apologise in advance for any inconvenience this essential work may cause.”
“To minimise traffic congestion on Skipton Road we will be manning the traffic lights between 7am and 7pm to help ease the flow of traffic. This essential work forms part of an ongoing mains replacement programme which will see Northern Gas Networks replace more than 3,000km of gas pipe across the north of England by 2020.”
