A ONE-WAY system will be temporarily in place as gas work is carried out.
Wales & West Utilities is upgrading parts of the gas network in Barry and will soon begin work on the Park Crescent area; they have agreed with Vale of Glamorgan Council to implement a one-way system on Romilly Road and Park Crescent while work is carried out.
This system will be in place from July 19 to August 31. Diversion routes will be clearly signposted, and residents living in the area will directly receive information about the traffic management plans ahead of the work.
Wales & West Utilities’ Adam Smith is managing this gas pipe upgrade work and said: “While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across Barry. Whether it’s heating your home, making the family dinner or having a hot bath, we understand how important it is for your gas supply to be safe and reliable and there when you need it.
“This work is essential to keep the gas flowing to local homes and businesses today, and to make sure the gas network is ready to transport hydrogen and biomethane, so we can all play our part in a green future.
“We will work as safely and as quickly as possible to finish the work, whilst keeping inconvenience to a minimum for local people and road users. Our engineers are following all hygiene and social distancing guidelines and we would respectfully ask that you keep a two metre distance if passing our work site.”
“To support communities through coronavirus, we’re working hard to keep the gas flowing so local people are safe and warm.”
Wales & West Utilities teams will follow clear guidelines to keep themselves and local people safe. This includes:
- Before entering customer’s homes, engineers will wash their hands with soap and water.
- While in customer’s homes, they’ll wear face coverings and eye protection, and may ask anyone else in the house to stand in another room while they are working
- When working in the street, they’ll social distance as far as possible, and urge local people who may be passing to keep two metres away from work sites
