Update from Wales & West Utilities
Essential gas mains replacement work: College Road Project, Oswestry
Tuesday 17th January, 2012
This essential gas mains replacement project began on Monday 9th January as scheduled with a 2-man team working on Maple Avenue. So far, five services have been re-laid and the first gas main insertion of 175m is planned for Friday 20th January.
The project is on target at present and it is our intention where necessary to undertake some weekend working in order to keep the programme on schedule.
We are receiving excellent co-operation from local residents
LATEST: As a consequence of Gas Mains Replacement Works, there are a few road diversions in Oswestry for three weeks from Jan 9th. Here's our current understanding:
The works are situated at the bottom of Willow St by the Cross. Pedestrian traffic is fine and unchanged.
For vehicle traffic:
Access to Willow St & New St 24/7
Access is from the top of Willow St i.e. the junction with Welsh Walls and Castle St. You can drive down Willow St and down as far as New St. There will be no on-street parking.
Access to Church St & Cross St 24/7
Cross St and Church St will become one-way (from Cross St to Church St). So access to Church St is via Cross St.
If you get to the mini-roundabout of Festival Square from Upper Church St, you will be unable to drive down Church St and need to turn right and follow the road around English Walls, up Leg St, to come along Cross St to get to Church St.
This is the latest information we have. We shall update when we get more info and/or clarity. Hope it is useful.
