NOTICE OF ROAD WORK DISRUPTION FROM 15.06.2020

Planned works that are scheduled to start on Front Street, Benton on Monday 15 June 2020. Northern Gas Networks (NGN) will be starting works to replace 530m of ageing metallic gas main. The work will take approximately 11 weeks to complete.  
The works will be completed in two phases, with the first phase starting on Monday 15 June 2020, and lasting three weeks. Phase one will start at the junction of Front Street and Coach Lane, near The Black Bull Inn. It will be necessary to install temporary three – way lights on the junction, replacing the existing traffic lights.. 
When phase one is complete, we will then start works on the main stretch of Front Street. This phase will include digging a trench large enough to replace the existing pipe like for like, to ensure the continuity of a safe gas supply in the area.
 To allow the next phase of works to be completed as quickly and as safely as possible it will be necessary to enforce an East to West road closure on Front Street for up to eight weeks.
 Temporary traffic lights will be put in place on the junction of Front Street and Coach Lane, and temporary three- way traffic lights will be erected at the junction of Front Street, Station Road and the entrance to Tyneview Park DWP.
