Upgrading the gas pipes in Crickhowell
Wales & West Utilities is making good progress with work to upgrade 3 kilometres of the gas network in Crickhowell.
The £500,000 work is essential to keep the gas flowing safely and reliably to local homes and businesses, keeping people warm for generations to come.
As part of the next phase of work Wales & West Utilities has liaised with Powys County Council and it has been agreed that Castle Road will be closed between 20 June – 22 July. A diversion route will be clearly signposted, and motorists are advised to allow extra travelling time.
Wales & West Utilities Adam Smith is managing this gas pipe upgrade work and said:
While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across Crickhowell. Whether it’s heating your home, making the family dinner or having a hot bath, we understand how important it is for your gas supply to be safe and reliable and there when you need it.
This work is essential to keep the gas flowing to local homes and businesses today, and to make sure the gas network is ready to transport hydrogen and biomethane, so we can all play our part in a green future.
We will work as safely and as quickly as possible to finish the work, whilst keeping inconvenience to a minimum for local people and road users.
