Wales & West Utilities is starting work to upgrade the gas network in the Tycroes area.

The work, in the Pontardulais Road area, starts on 29 March and is essential to keep the gas flowing safely and reliably to local homes and businesses. It will finish by 21 May, keeping local people safe and warm for generations to come.

To keep disruption to a minimum Wales & West Utilities has worked closely with Carmarthenshire County Council. So that engineers and the local community are kept safe during the work, traffic lights will be in place throughout the scheme.

Adam Smith, Wales & West Utilities Programme Controller said: “While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across Tycroes. Whether it’s heating your home, making the family dinner or having a hot bath, we understand how important it is for your gas supply to be safe and reliable and there when you need it.

“This work is essential to keep the gas flowing to local homes and businesses today, and to make sure the gas network is ready to transport hydrogen and biomethane, so we can all play our part in a green future.

“We will work as safely and as quickly as possible to finish the work, whilst keeping inconvenience to a minimum for local people and road users. Our engineers are following all hygiene and social distancing guidelines and we would respectfully ask that you keep a 2m distance if passing our work site.

“To support communities through Coronavirus, we’re working hard to keep the gas flowing so local people are safe and warm.”
