S G N gas network upgrade in Hamilton Road area

Alert message sent 24/08/2020 12:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland


The following information is being circulated on behalf of SGN

I’m writing to you to make you aware of our upcoming project to upgrade our gas network in Hamilton Road, Glasgow.

This project involves us replacing our existing gas mains and services in the area with new plastic pipe. Our essential work will ensure your community receives a continued 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’re looking to start work in Hamilton Road on 24 August and our project will last approximately eight weeks. Our project will be carried out by our contractor SSE on our behalf.

Phase one – approximately four weeks
On Monday 24 August, we’ll begin working in Hamilton Road between number 175 and 142. To ensure everyone’s safety, we will implement a ‘give and take’ traffic management system from outside number 175. This will then change to two and three-way temporary traffic lights until we reach number No 142.

Phase two – approximately five weeks
From Monday 21 September 2020, we’ll continue working in Hamilton Road from outside number 142 to between Howieshill Road and the overhead railway crossing.
During this phase we will install two and three-way temporary traffic lights where necessary.

All temporary traffic lights used in this project will be manually controlled during peak hours to help minimise inconvenience as much as possible.

Whilst we carry out our work, the cycle lane will be closed and will be utilised for our work area. 

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

If you have any other enquiries about this project, please call 07831 730 597 during office hours (8am to 4.30pm) or Customer Service on 0800 912 1700 outside these times.

We’re writing to other local stakeholders to make them aware of our project and explain the details of our work. Please feel free to also share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project.

Thank you in advance for your support.
