Replacement gas pipes – road works for 23 weeks

Message from Southern Gas Networks


Dear Stakeholder,


We are writing to let you know about our project to upgrade our gas network in Best Beech Hill, Wadhurst. We are replacing our old metal gas mains and services with new plastic pipe. This essential work will ensure your community continues to receive a safe and reliable gas supply.


In consultation with East Sussex County Council, our contractor, I & G Contracting, who will be completing this project on our behalf, will start work on 17 October for approximately twenty-three weeks.


Our engineers will start work on 17 October in Fairglen Road, we will need to close the road for approximately eight weeks to ensure the safety of everyone around our work site. Access will be maintained for residents and businesses and a signed diversion will be in place.


We will then start work in Best Beech Hill from 3 January for approximately five weeks. During this time, we will need to install temporary two-way signals at the junction of Fairglen Road to Spring Cottage,


Our work site will then move to Mayfield Lane on 13 February for approximately six weeks. The temporary two-way traffic signals will move with us.


We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks, however we would not close a road unless it is unsafe not to.


We’re writing to residents and other local stakeholders to make them aware of our project and explain the details of our work. Please feel free to also share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project.
