National Grid have informed us that they have a gas leak on Ramsbottom Lane in the town centre, in the vicinity of Sanminis Restaurant.
They have been venting the area but now wish to carry out some rock drilling on Sunday (11 January) to locate the leak. They will then need to return on Monday (12 January) to hopefully carry out the repair.
National Grid have been requested to use stop/go boards which will give greater flexibility to the traffic control at this very busy location.
However, when they return on Monday they will be using temporary two way traffic signals as they cannot guarantee that they will have the repair completed in one day. If this is the case the signals will remain in situ and will be manned at peak periods.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
