Northern Gas Networks to carry out urgent work in Lowgate next week



Northern Gas Networks (NGN) is carrying out essential work to provide a safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in Hull for many years to come.

Work to replace the ageing metallic main on Lowgate with a more durable plastic main will begin on Tuesday 1 June 2021 and is expected to last up to three weeks.

So that engineers can carry out the work safely and efficiently, and to protect the public, some traffic management measures will be put in place for the duration of the work.

Lowgate will be closed from the junction with Alfred Gelder Street to the corner of Bowlalley LaneThere will be no access into Bowlalley Lane for motorists via Lowgate. In addition, access to the surrounding streets via Silver Street is only available up till 11am daily when it closes to vehicles to give priority to restaurant seating. Signs will be displayed for motorists and a full signed diversion put in place.

Russel Kaye, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these essential works. However, it is vital we complete them in order to continue to maintain a safe and reliable gas supply to the residents of Hull.

“NGN is continuing to carry out essential services while following strict Government guidelines for safe distance working and observing health and safety guidance during the current lockdown in England.

“We want to assure residents and road users that we will be working hard to complete this scheme as safely and as quickly as possible.”
