The following information is being circulated on behalf of SGN

As you may be aware, SGN manages the network that distributes natural and green gas to 5.9 million homes and businesses across Scotland and the south of England. We also provide the gas emergency service in these areas.

I’m writing to let you know we will shortly be starting our third and final stage of our works in the Burnside area of Glasgow. This essential work involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.

Following discussions with South Lanarkshire Council our third stage will start on Monday 17 June 2019 and last approximately 17 weeks. We’ll be carrying out this stage of work over three phases to help minimise disruption. Each phase is described below.

Phase one – approximately four weeks
On Monday 17 June we will begin work in Elm Road.
During this phase, we’ll also be working in:

•          Lower Bourtree Drive
•          Upper Bourtree Drive
•          Snaefell Avenue

Most of our work will take place on the footpath however, to ensure everyone’s safety we will have to install two-way and three-way temporary traffic lights when we reach the junctions of Burnside Road / Lower Bourtree Drive / Snaefell Avenue and Snaefell Avenue / Snaefell Crescent and Bradda Avenue.

Phase two – approximately six weeks
From Monday 15 July, we’ll be working in Burnside Road between Lochbrae Drive and Fennsbank Avenue. We will require to install two-way and three-way temporary traffic lights at each junction as we progress south.
During this phase, we’ll also be working in:
•          Lochbrae Drive
