Notification of major gas replacement works: York Road area Edinburgh – 17 August

Although outside of our area, those close to or due to travel in the York Road area on 17th August may be interested in this gas works notice.

(adapted from an email from SGN)

I’m writing to you to make you aware of our upcoming project to upgrade our gas network in the York Road area of Edinburgh. This project involves us replacing our existing gas mains with new plastic pipe.

Our essential work will ensure the local community receives a continued safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come. We’re working closely with Scottish Government to make sure we carry out our project in line with all current coronavirus safety guidance. We shouldn’t need to interrupt gas supplies to homes or businesses, and our engineers won’t be calling at residents’ homes, unless it’s an emergency.

We’re looking to start work in the York Road area of Edinburgh on Monday the 17 August and our project will last approximately four weeks.

We are required to remove a small section of pipe at the junction with East Trinity Road. During this project and due to the location of the pipe it will be necessary to close York Road at its junction with East Trinity Road. Local diversions will be in place during this time. To help carryout these essential works parking suspensions will be in operation and there will also be a requirement for temporary traffic signals.

We have extra safety precautions in place to protect our colleagues and our communities from the virus. Our colleagues will be keeping to social distancing guidelines on our sites and we’d ask communities to keep their distance too. There’s more information about our coronavirus response on our website: sgn.co.uk/coronavirus

I’m also writing to local stakeholders to make them aware of our project. Please feel free to also share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project.

If you have any specific enquiries about this project, please call us on 0800 912 1700 and our customer service team will be happy to help.

Thank you for your support during these challenging times and if there’s anything else you need please let me know.

Kind regards
