DRIVERS travelling through Newnham can expect delays because of gas works to continue for the foreseeable future as the work is not due to be completed until at least April.
Works on the road, which is the main route between the Forest, Chepstow with Gloucester, began earlier this month.
Rolling traffic lights are in place so that the work can be carried safely on the road by gas emergency and pipeline service, Wales and West Utilities.
Wales and West say that the work to upgrade over two kilometres of gas pipe is ‘essential’ to ensure that homes and businesses have access to heating and power for ‘generations to come’.
Wales and West Utilities’ Sean Morrisey, who is managing the work, said: “We’re making good progress on upgrading the gas pipes along the A48 in Newnham and really want to thank local people for their patience so far.
“We know working in areas like this can be disruptive, but we’re committed to doing everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum while we are working.
“We’ll have a team of gas engineers on site throughout the project to make sure our work is completed as safely and as quickly as possible.”
“This work will not only keep the gas flowing safely and reliably today, it will also help make sure the gas network is fit for the future and can play its part in delivering reliable and affordable green energy.”
The work is due to be completed during the first week of April, barring any unexpected difficulties
