SGN Upgrade of gas network, Canterbury Road, Birchington
Westgate-on-Sea Town Council
We are writing to let you know about our project to upgrade our gas network in the Canterbury Road area of Birchington. This work will upgrade our old metal gas mains and services with new plastic pipe. This essential work will ensure your community continues to receive a safe and reliable gas supply.
In consultation with Kent County Council our contractor, I&G Contracting, who will be completing this project on our behalf, will start work in Norrie Road in the week beginning 4 December 2023. We anticipate that it will take approximately 22 weeks to complete this project in its entirety.
Due to the position of the pipes in the road, and to ensure the safety of everyone around our worksite we will need to close some of the roads around our works area.
Canterbury Road: From 5 February 2024 with an estimated end date of 10 May 2024. We will be working from the junction with The Square and Station Road to outside number 357 Canterbury Road.
The Square: From 5 February 2024 with an estimated end date of 1 March 2024. We will be working from the junction with Canterbury Road and Park Lane to the junction with Station Road
Park Lane: From 5 February 2024 with an estimated end date of 1 March 2024. Park Lane will be closed at its junctions with Canterbury Road and Station Road.
While the roads are closed, there will be signed diversion routes in place and access will be kept for residents and businesses.
We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks, and therefore we only use traffic management that we feel is efficient enough to complete these works safely for ourselves and the public.
We’re writing to residents and 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 affected by our project.
