Update from Wales & West Utilities

Essential gas mains replacement work on College Road, Oswestry

Friday 2nd March, 2012

Work began last week on College Road and this will remain our key target for completion. We will also be finishing off work at Maple Avenue. Because the project is behind target, WWU’s teams have been working Saturday and Sunday to close the gap. However, additional manpower is being drafted in from Colwyn Bay next week to attempt to complete this part of the project ahead of schedule.

We would like to thank residents for their support and co-operation with this project. Our engineers on site have been well received during these difficult works.

Unfortunately, because of essential operational requirements elsewhere in Mid Wales, Maple Avenue is 2/3 weeks behind schedule. The College Road part of the project, which was due to begin today (Monday 13th February) will now be delayed by two weeks. An additional team will be brought in to assist with this section of the programme which should help to speed up progress and allow the lost time to be regained.

Customers involved in the replacement work shave been very helpful and complimentary about the work teams.

170 metres of plastic mains have so far been laid and ten domestic services have been renewed. Reinstatement work is now under way on Maple Avenue and residents have been very helpful and co-operative on site.

The replacement work will move to the other side of Maple Avenue and Lilac Close during this week commencing 30th January with an extra team being introduced on site to help to speed up the process.

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
