Northern Gas Networks to carry out essential upgrade work to maintain a safe and reliable gas supply


Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the gas distributor for the North of England, is carrying out essential work to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in Middlesbrough.

The ageing metal pipework is now being replaced by new, more durable plastic pipes, to ensure a safe and reliable supply of gas to customers now while getting the network ready to transport alternative greener fuels such as hydrogen in the future.

The work on College Road will start on 24th October 2022 and is expected to last for one week. It has been planned in collaboration with Middlesbrough Council.

So that engineers can carry out the work safely and efficiently, and to protect the public, some traffic management measures will be put in place.

As of the 24th October, three-way temporary traffic lights will be in place at the roundabout of College Road and The Greenway.

While the majority of the work will be carried out in the street, engineers will need to access a small number of customer properties to complete the project and ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas.

Jack Hepplewhite, Site Manager for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these essential works. However, it is vital we complete them in order to continue to maintain a safe and reliable gas supply to the residents of Middlesbrough.”

For further information about the work please contact NGN’s Customer Care Team on 0800 040 7766 or email: customercare@northerngas.co.uk.

Anyone that smells gas or suspects carbon monoxide should call the National Gas Emergency Service immediately on 0800 111 999. This line is in operation 24-hours a day, seven days a week
