Millions spent on mains

ALMOST £7m will be spent on replacing gas mains in several towns and villages including Eastwood, Newthorpe and Langley Mill.

National Grid is replacing 45km of old metal gas mains with new plastic pipes in Langley Mill, Eastwood, Newthorpe, Sandiacre, Carlton, Arnold and Gedling.

The work will be carried out in residential areas with no disruption to traffic and where possible, pipes will be inserted inside the existing mains to reduce the need for excavations.

Gas supplies will be disrupted on just one day at each area as the gas supply is being transferred from the old gas pipe to the new one.

Work in Langley Mill will take place between May and August, in Eastwood between August and December and Newthorpe between April and July.
