This Message is Distributed on Behalf of Scottish Gas Networks

We know that during the coronavirus outbreak, our communities will rely on us now more than ever to keep them safe and warm and the safety of our communities and our employees will remain our number one priority in the weeks and months ahead.

Our safety-critical project to upgrade the gas network needs to go ahead now, rather than wait until the pandemic passes, to ensure your local community continues to receive a safe and reliable gas supply. We’re working closely with Scottish Government to make sure we carry out our project in line with all current coronavirus safety guidance.

We have agreed with South Ayrshire Council to carry out this necessary work during the lockdown to minimise disruption to the local community.
We will not need to interrupt gas supplies to homes or businesses, and our engineers won’t be calling at residents’ home.

We’re looking to start work in Main Road, Ayr on Monday 18 January and our project will last approximately twelve weeks.

From Monday 18 January, we’ll be working in Main Road at its junction with Low Road and High Road. To ensure everyone’s safety, we’ll instal temporary four-way traffic lights at this junction. These will be manually controlled at peak times and will be in place for approximately eight weeks.
Once we have completed this section, we’ll progress along Main Road, towards Ayr Town Centre. During this time, it will be necessary to close the inside lane of the carriageway, meaning parking restrictions will be in place whilst we carry out our work.

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 project manager Robert Thornton on 07967 602 537 during office hours (8am to 4.30pm) or Customer Service on 0800 912 1700 outside these times.
