Gas supplies in Welwyn Garden City to be improved
WORK to improve the gas supplies in WGC has begun today (Monday).
The multi-million pound scheme will see 18km of metallic gas mains replaced with new hard wearing plastic pipes in roads around the Garden City.
Investing over �2.3m, National Grid will also upgrade service pipes to domestic and commercial properties.
This means engineers will need to gain access to some houses to carry out the work, however residents will be contacted in advance to arrange a time and date.
National Grid’s construction operation engineer Kevin Blundell said: “We apologise for any inconvenience and we appreciate the patience and co-operation of residents and road users while this essential work is carried out.”
