Motorists are advised to allow extra travelling time while the lights are in operation.

Wales & West Utilities’ Ross O’Donnell, who is managing this gas pipe upgrade work, said:

“While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across Stoke Gifford. Whether it’s heating your home, making the family dinner or having a hot bath, we understand how important it is for your gas supply to be safe and reliable and there when you need it.”

“This work is essential to keep the gas flowing to local homes and businesses today, and to make sure the gas network is ready to transport hydrogen and biomethane, so we can all play our part in a green future.”

“We will work as safely and as quickly as possible to finish the work, whilst keeping inconvenience to a minimum for local people and road users.”
