Major gas replacement works A89 East of Blackridge

Alert message sent 29/06/2020 10:10:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland


The following information is being circulated on behalf of SGN

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 A89 East of Blackridge. 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 A89 East of Blackridge area on Monday the 29 June. Our project will be carried out by our contractor George Ritchie on our behalf.

During this time our works will start within a field to replace 800m of main. We will then proceed onto the A89 under temporary traffic signals for a period of up to 7-8 weeks.

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.

Thank you for your support during these challenging times and if there’s anything else you need please let me know.
