Alert message sent 22/06/2020 12:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland


This Message is Distributed on Behalf of Scottish Gas Networks.

As you are 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 you to make you aware of our upcoming project to upgrade our gas network in the Main Street, area of East Calder. This project involves us replacing our existing gas mains with new plastic pipe.
 
Our essential work will ensure the local community receives a continued safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come. We’re working closely with Scottish Government to make sure we carry out our project in line with all current coronavirus safety guidance. We shouldn’t need to interrupt gas supplies to homes or businesses, and our engineers won’t be calling at residents’ homes, unless it’s an emergency. 
 
We’re looking to start work in the Main Street area of East Calder on Monday the 22 June. Our project will be carried out by our contractor George Ritchie on our behalf and the work will last for approximately 3-4 weeks.
 
During this time our works will require temporary traffic signals and due to the need to social distance some footways will be closed during this time. 
 
We have extra safety precautions in place to protect our colleagues and our communities from the virus. Our colleagues will be keeping to social distancing guidelines on our sites and we’d ask communities to keep their distance too. There’s more information about our coronavirus response on our website: sgn.co.uk/coronavirus 
 
I’m also writing to local stakeholders to make them aware of our project. Please feel free to also share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project. 
 
If you have any specific enquiries about this project, please call us on 0800 912 1700 and our customer service team will be happy to help.
