Temporary traffic lights on Skipton Road in Harrogate for gas repair works


Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the North of England’s gas distributor, will begin essential gas mains replacement work on Skipton Road, Harrogate on Thursday 17 May 2018.

In order for the work to be completed as safely and quickly as possible, three-way lights, followed by two-way lights, will be in place outside Glendowne Terrace until Monday 21 May 2018.



The project is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the gas infrastructure in the area and involves replacing existing metal gas pipes with more durable plastic ones. This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.

Lee Crowley, Site Manager at Northern Gas Networks said:

The safety of our customers and engineers is our number one priority, and the traffic management is essential in ensuring the general public and our workforce stays safe at all times.

We’re working closely with North Yorkshire County Council and Harrogate Borough Council to minimise disruption to road users, residents and businesses while this essential repair work is taking place, and will continue to monitor and adjust the traffic management required as work progresses.

We would like to thank customers for their patience at this time and apologise for any inconvenience experienced.
