Gas Leak, Devon Expressway, Ivybridge

news

Andy Jones, Wales & West Utilities Operational Manager said: "We have been working round the clock on the A38 Devon Expressway in Ivybridge to repair a leak on a gas pipe running beneath the road. "In agreement with Highways England and to keep the local community, road users and our colleagues safe while we worked, we closed a lane on both the eastbound and westbound lanes in the Lee Mill area. “This was a complex job, but after working as safely and as quickly as possible our engineers have repaired the leak. "We are now filling in the holes that we have dug and will need to keep the lane closures in place in order to allow the new road surface time to set. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, we expect to complete our work and fully reopen the road by 06:00am Wednesday morning (24 July). "We would like to thank members of the public for their patience while we carried out this essential work. We appreciate that working on roads like these is not ideal, but it was important that we fixed this leak now, to continue to provide a safe and reliable supply of gas to homes and businesses in the area. "If anyone smells gas, thinks they have a gas leak, or suspects carbon monoxide poisoning, they should call us on 0800 111 999 and our engineers will be there to help, day or night."
