Broughton Street area gas works: update 22 February

(adapted from an email from SGN)

Our project at Broughton Street is progressing well and the good news is that we should have Broughton Street fully reopened around two weeks ahead of schedule.

From 6am on Tuesday 26 February we will open up Broughton Street from London Street to Albany Street with two-way traffic.

We then plan to fully open the remainder of Broughton Street to two-way traffic by Friday 15 March.

I appreciate that there are separate works being carried out by another contractor at the junctions of York Place and Broughton Street. This area will have to be clear to allow us to open up Broughton Street on the 15 March.

Our engineering team will be working in the area again this weekend.

Thank you for your patience and continued support.

Kind regards
