Good morning 

Notification of major gas works: Augustus Road, Southfields – Tuesday 26 February UPDATE

I am writing to provide you with an update regarding our gas network upgrade in Augustus Road, Southfields

We have completed the essential connection in Augustus Road, to maintain the gas supply to the local area. We were able to safely re-open the eastbound lane of Augustus Road for Tuesday 19 February.

Our engineers continue to upgrade our gas pipe along Augustus Road between its junctions with Albert Drive and Beaumont Road. For everyone’s safety around our site, the westbound lane of Augustus Road remains closed between these junctions. A signed diversion will be in place for motorists.

We have now adopted an open-cut technique to carry out replacement at this location and this work is expected to last approximately nine to ten weeks. We have further work to carry out along Augustus Road later in the year, and we’re continuing to plan this with the local authority.

We appreciation your understanding and patience while we carry out essential gas mains replacement work in the area.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Kind regards

Paige Roberts
