Gas main work means Beverley road closure

Work which started earlier this month to upgrade ageing metal gas mains in Mill Lane, Beverley, will necessitate a road closure later this month, lasting approximately two weeks.

Initial works being carried out by Northern Gas Networks, began at the junction of Cherry Tree Lane and Holderness Crescent on Monday September 4th. From Monday September 25th, there will be a road closure on the Cherry Tree crossing for approximately two weeks. During this time motorists will be unable to access Mill Lane via Cherry Tree Lane and will need to access the road via Sample Avenue, Coltman Avenue and Norwood. Shops and businesses in the area will remain open as usual.

Northern Gas Networks’s Customer Care officers have been door-knocking local homes and businesses to make customers aware of the project, while on-site signage will advise motorists of the work taking place. A customer cabin is located on Sample Avenue which is open to customers every Monday between 9.30am and 10.30am where the team will be on hand to answer any questions about the work as it progresses.

The cost of the work is put at £60,000. Robert Hope, construction services area manager for Northern Gas Networks, told Beverley FM: “We have worked closely with East Riding of Yorkshire Council to carefully plan these works and will be doing all we can to minimise disruption to customers.

“We will endeavour to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible and will keep customers updated as the work progresses.  We would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience caused during these works and thank everyone for their patience and support while we carry out this essential upgrade.”
