UPGRADE GAS NETWORK ON THE A264 LANGTON ROAD and the surrounding area. Essential replacement of old metal gas mains with new plastic pipe.

Phase one – lasting approximately three weeks
Engineers will begin working outside No.9 Hither Chantlers and progress south to where the road loops round. They will be working along the footpath and traffic flow will be maintained in both directions.

Phase two – lasting approximately seven weeks
