20th June 2018 by Networks
Cadent is carrying out essential work in St Andrew’s Street South, Bury St Edmunds, to replace the old gas mains with tough new pipes.
Cadent authorising engineer Vince Doggett said: “We’ve carefully planned our work to ensure that it’s delivered with as little disruption as possible.
“Our preparations have included close discussions with the local authorities and carrying out ground surveys to come up with the best plan possible to deliver this essential work.”
He added: “We’ll also insert the new pipes into the old gas mains where possible which reduces the need for large excavations and minimises disruption.
“Our project will help ensure local people keep on enjoying safe and reliable gas for cooking and heating – another chapter in Bury St Edmunds long and eventful history.”
