£1m upgrade to Huddersfield gas distribution network

The project is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the gas infrastructure in the area and involves replacing more than 3,500 m of existing metal gas pipes with more durable plastic ones. This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come. 

Beginning yesterday (Monday 26 February), the project will take approximately 35-weeks and is scheduled for completion at the end of September. It has been planned in conjunction with Kirklees Council to ensure the works are completed as quickly and safely as possible.

The work has been planned in three phases. Chris Nevison, business operational leader at Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have been working closely with Kirklees Council to carefully plan these works in order to minimise any disruption to customers.”
