From 23 October gas mains replacement work at Ockham Road South and Lynx Hill Junction is being undertaken by Southern Gas Networks (SGN) with an estimated duration of 3 weeks. This work requires the closure of ORS from the junction of Pennymead Drive to the junction of Lynx Hill. The attached map shows the signed diversion that will be put in place.
SGN have said they will also include “No turning facilities ahead” and “No through access via Pennymead Drive” signs for Pennymead Drive.
SGN are currently working on a 30-year programme to replace all metal pipes within 30 metres of property with new plastic pipes. The plastic pipes are more flexible and robust and if left undisturbed will last for decades, ensuring a continued safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
While work is taking place, please feel free to speak to engineers on site. They will be happy to try to address any concerns or requirements you or others may have about their work.
