“I’m writing to you to make you aware of our upcoming £35,500 project to upgrade our gas network in Kenilworth Road, Bridge of Allan. This project involves us replacing our existing gas mains and services in the area with new plastic pipe.
Our essential work will ensure your community receives a continued safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come. We’re working closely with Scottish Government to make sure we carry out our project in line with all current coronavirus safety guidance.
We’re looking to start work from outside number 2 to number 24a Kenilworth Road on Monday, 21 September for four weeks. Our project will be carried out by our own engineers and will involve replacing around 240m of metallic main with new PE pipe. We will use an insertion technique if possible to avoid digging lengthy trenches in the road. During the work we will use ‘give and take’ and temporary traffic lights if required. It will be necessary to temporarily close the footpath but there will be no need to suspend parking.
We wish to assure you that our work will progress as quickly as possible and we’ll be doing everything we can to limit delays and disruption.
We have extra safety precautions in place to protect our colleagues and our communities from the virus. Our colleagues will be keeping to social distancing guidelines on our sites and we’d ask communities to keep their distance too. There’s more information about our coronavirus response on our website: sgn.co.uk/coronavirus
We’re writing to residents and other local stakeholders to make them aware of our project and explain the details of our work. Please feel free to also share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project.
Thank you in advance for your support.
