Starting from 6th April and potentially continuing until the end of the year, Cadent, the company that maintains the gas network in the area, is starting a gas main renewals program across parts of Gamesley.
The works are mainly scheduled for the ‘electric’ side of Gamesley.
Cadent advises that the planned replacement method will see the new pipes inserted into the old gas mains wherever possible. This will reduce the need for large excavations.
However, some work will require trenches to be dug due to the gas mains’ size, which will need to be installed.
Ageing gas service pipes supplying individual properties will also need to be replaced or existing PE supplies transferred to the new pipe.
Where they have to carry out this work, engineers will need to switch off the gas supply to affected properties for approximately 12 hours. Cadent will be communicating with affected properties involved nearer the time.
You can view a video from cadent which explains the process below.
Cadent advise that, for properties where they have to disconnect the gas supply, they should be advised between 15 to 10 days before the works with further visits before and following the works.
The list of streets that are advised to be directly impacted by the works and gas supply interruption are:
LONGNOR WAY, HOLLINS CLOSE, HOLLINS FOLD, HOLLINS WAY, HOLLINS AVENUE, ELTON LEA, COMBS FOLD, COMBS GROVE, COMBS TERRACE, ELTON PLACE, SHELDEN MEWS, HURDLOW MEWS, WARDLOW MEWS, LANGSETT TERRACE, TOTLEY GARDENS, BAKEWELL WALK, ASHFORD GREEN, BAKEWELL GREEN, BAKEWELL GARDENS, TOTLEY GREEN, YOULGREAVE CRESCENT, MONEYASH MEWS, ROWARTH WAY, ROWARTH FOLD, EYAM GROVE, CROMFORD GREEN, CROMFORD FOLD, CROMFORD BANK, HUCKLOW BANK, HUCKLOW FOLD, HOLLINS LANE, HADDON MEWS, LANGSETT LANE
