Gas distribution company SGN will be starting work on Monday, September 14, to upgrade the local gas supply network in the Teville Gate area of Worthing.
As part of a project to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local community, the existing metal gas mains and services need to be replaced with modern plastic polyethylene pipe.
The essential work forms part of an ongoing mains replacement programme developed with the Health and Safety Executive. Following discussions with West Sussex County Council, the project will last approximately six weeks.
Work will take place in Broadwater Road (A24) between Newland Road and Teville Road.
To ensure everyone’s safety, lane closures will be implemented across the Teville Gate roundabouts for the duration of the work.
There will be no entry to Newland Road from Broadwater Road for the duration of the work and a signed diversion will be in place.
SGN Project Manager Peter Callaway said: “We’ve worked closely with the local authorities in planning this work and we will be doing everything we can to reduce disruption during our essential project.
“We appreciate that roadworks can be frustrating. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means once the work has been completed, people in Worthing will enjoy the benefits of a continued safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come.”
Specific details and a map showing each phase of work can be found on SGN’s website as well as a short video explaining more about what to expect from the mains replacement work.
