The work involved upgrading over 95 kilometres of old metal pipes to new long-lasting plastic pipes and upgrading more than 7,000 individual service pipes that supply homes and businesses.

Francis Kirk, Wales & West Utilities programme controller for the area, said: “My team are working hard to upgrade old metal gas pipes to new plastic ones across the region – essential to keep the gas flowing to heat homes and power businesses in the area and keep local families safe and warm for generations to come.

“Every year across Wales and the south west of England we replace 400km of pipe.  We know our work can be disruptive, but we really appreciate the support of local people as we do our work – keeping the gas flowing and preparing the gas network for the future.”
