The current long-term gas works in Lower Road will be suspended between Monday 26 February and Monday 5 March whilst the road is reinstated for ‘The Big Half’ marathon on Sunday 4 March.
“It is very difficult at this stage to say what phase of our work we will be at when we come to suspend, because we are currently experiencing a number of engineering difficulties that are causing some delays,” said Dan Edwards of Southern Gas Networks.
“We are doing all we can to overcome these as quickly and safely as possible, however as a result we are running slightly behind schedule.
“We will still be working extended hours to complete our work as safely and quickly as possible.
“We are mindful of those people who live in the area, and will try to keep noisy activity to a minimum where possible.”
