Northern Gas Networks is to invest £40,000 in Driffield to replace 390 metres of ageing metal gas mains with new durable plastic pipes.
The work will start on Monday 24 March and is expected to take seven weeks.
Road closures will be in place on Exchange Street for seven weeks from Monday 24 March and traffic will be diverted. Three way traffic lights will also be in place at the junction of Cranwell Road and Exchange Street for three weeks from Monday 31 March.
Shops and businesses will remain open as usual and pedestrian access will be maintained.
Garry Farnhill, Customer Operations Area Manager, Northern Gas Networks said; “We have planned our work closely with Driffield Town Council to minimise disruption to both residents and motorists. A letter is being sent to residents, businesses and stakeholders.
“Our Customer Liaison team is also door-knocking residents and businesses in the area to help ensure they are aware of the work.
“We are also holding two community forums prior to work commencing, where members of the public can find out more about the work, ask questions or raise any concerns.”
The first forum will take place on Wednesday 12 March from 5pm to 7m at Driffield Methodist Church, Middle Street North, Driffield. A second forum will take place at the same venue on Wednesday 19 March from 12 noon to 2pm.
