Gas mains upgrades on A52 Roman Bank in Skegness to last four weeks

The works will last four weeks.

Gas mains upgrade works lasting four weeks will begin on the A52 Roman Bank in Skegness today.

Drivers are being warned to expect disruption while the existing iron gas main is replaced with tough new plastic pipes which should mean that residents will get safe and reliable gas supplies until 2100.

There will be the following closures:

  • Lane closures on Roman Bank between Prince George Street and Lumley Road
  • The junction of Prince George Street and Roman Bank will be closed
  • The existing one-way system in Prince George Street will be temporarily lifted to allow cars and delivery lorries access in and out of Prince George Street from Lumley Avenue

Cadent authorising engineer Paul Martin said: “This pipe has had a history of leaks so it’s essential that we replace it. The work will ensure local residents and businesses can continue to enjoy a safe and reliable gas supply until the end of the century.

“We always try to minimise any disruption caused by our work. We have timed this project to take place outside the busy tourist season to reduce any impact on the local community and economy.

“We would urge people to be patient while we complete the mains renewal work.”
