SGN - Gas Network Upgrade Update - Saltcoats
The following message has been circulated on behalf of SGN:
Further to my email of 6 November and following further discussions with North Ayrshire Council Roads Department, we've now split the project into four phases to minimise disruption as much as possible.
Revised phases are described below:
Phase 1 – Approximately six weeks
On Monday 12 November we’ll start work in Jacks Road between High Road and Argyle Road. To ensure everyone’s safety, temporary two-way traffic lights will be employed as we progress along Jacks Road.
Phase 2 – Approximately two weeks
After a short break for Christmas and New Year, we’ll return to begin phase two of this project on Monday 7 January 2019. We'll be working at the junction of High Road and Jacks Road. Temporary three-way traffic lights will be in place at the junction to ensure the safety of road users and our engineers.
Phase 3 – Approximately four weeks
From Monday 21 January, three-way temporary traffic lights will be in place at the junction of Jacks Road and Argyle Road. Donaldson Avenue will also be closed at its junction with Argyle Road - a local signed diversion will be in place. At the same time, we’ll also be working in High Road (between numbers 87 and 153) and outside number 2 Adams Avenue. We may need to employ temporary two-way traffic lights in High Road, opposite Lindsey Ave and Kennedy Road, during this phase.
Phase 4 – Approximately four weeks
From Monday 18 February, we’ll be working in Argyle Road between Caledonia Primary school and Springvale Street. To ensure everyone’s safety, temporary two-way traffic lights will be in place in Argyle Road. As part of this phase, we’ll also need to put parking restrictions in place in Argyle Road.
If you have any other enquiries about this project, please call Project Manager Dougie Elliot on 07879 431 965 during office hours (8am to 4.30pm) or call us on 0800 912 1700 outside these times. Alternatively, you can contact me on the number below. We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Saltcoats residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
We always aim to minimise disruption and we will make every effort to ensure our works are completed as soon as possible.
