£1.4m project to upgrade gas pipes in Silverstone
Cadent will start work on a £1.4 million project to strengthen the gas pipes in the Silverstone area this month (April).
6th April 2018 by Networks
The 20-week project will see Cadent carry out an upgrade to more than four kilometres of gas pipes.
The project will see new gas mains installed alongside the existing ones so that the network can respond to the need for extra gas.
To keep staff and road-users safe while the work is underway multiple sets of temporary traffic lights will be used to help traffic flow more freely in Towcester Road, High Street and Church Way.
Cadent authorising engineer Mark Allsop said: “Our job is to keep people safe and warm. This project is a significant investment to make sure that new pipes provide extra gas in the Silverstone area so that local people and businesses can continue to enjoy safe and reliable gas supplies for many decades to come.”
