Notification of major gas replacement works: Raeburn Place area, Edinburgh Update 16 March 2020 Update 29 March 2020

(copied from an email from SGN: It furthers the information in this recent NTBCC post.)

I’m writing to you further to my recent email about our ongoing work to upgrade our gas network in Raeburn Place, Stockbridge area, Edinburgh.

We know that during the coronavirus outbreak, our communities will rely on us now more than ever to keep them safe and warm. The safety of our communities and our employees will remain our number one priority in the weeks and months ahead.

Following the latest Government advice to stay at home, we must make changes to our usual ways of working. From Tuesday 24 March, we are only continuing with safety-critical and emergency work.

This means we’ll temporarily suspend our ongoing gas network upgrade in Raeburn Place, Stockbridge area, Edinburgh.

Over the coming days, we’ll wind down all our network upgrade projects in a controlled way to ensure people and sites are safe, and our network is secure.

We will continue to operate the 24/7 National Gas Emergency Service across the south of England and in Scotland during the coronavirus pandemic. Our engineers will continue to attend properties and make the situation safe, as always. We have extra safety precautions in place to make sure our customers and colleagues are protected from catching or spreading the virus.

There’s more information about our coronavirus preparations on our website:

Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times. I’ll write to you again when we’re able to restart our gas mains replacement project.

Kind regards
