Gas Main Latest
Posted Thursday, 17 November 2016 at 08:47

As many of my constituents will know, a major operation is underway to restore gas supplies to 6,000 properties to Ampthill, Clophill and Maulden after builders damaged a gas main on Tuesday.

National Grid has drafted in engineers from across the country. Engineering work to repair the pipe is well under way, with engineers working late into last night to fix the damaged pipe.

Gas must be turned off at the meter of every property before gas can be pumped back into the gas network and supplies restored.

National Grid has visited over 3,100 properties to turn off gas supplies. Of those, they not been able to yet get access to 400 homes.

If at all possible, please arrange for someone to be at home so National Grid engineers can switch you off. The sooner they are able to switch everybody off the sooner they can restore supplies.

If it just isn’t possible for someone to be in during the day, call
0845 835 1111 to make arrangements for access.

Once the repair has been made and gas is back in the mains, a second visit will be made to turn on the supply to each property and make sure it is flowing safely.
