Temporary traffic lights will be in operation for continuing gas main replacement works in Staplers Road (outside Broadlands House) from tomorrow night.
It has been announced that the one way restrictions which have blighted the town for weeks will be removed at 20:00 tomorrow (Tuesday) with the temporary traffic lights coming into force until Thursday afternoon.
After Easter, temporary lights will also be required from 9am on Tuesday 2nd April until 4pm on Friday 3rd May 2013 to enable the gas main on the Northern side of Staplers Road to be replaced between School Lane and Mayfield Drive.
Originally it was intended to replace this gas main at the same time as the gas main on the Southern side of the road, however due to pressure problems it was not possible.
These works form part of a major gas main and service replacement project in Staplers Road, from Blacklands Lane to Fairlee Road. Completion of the project is early May 2013.
FOR FURTHER DETAILS ABOUT THESE WORKS PLEASE CONTACT SOUTHERN GAS NETWORKS ON 0845 070 1431
