Wales & West Utilities is to start work to upgrade gas pipes in Carmarthen town centre next week.

The £90,000 work, in the Mansel Street area of the town, begins on Monday (5 July), and Wales and West Utilities say is essential to keep the gas flowing to heat homes and power businesses so that people are safe and warm for generations to come. Barring any engineering difficulties, the work will be complete by mid-September.

To plan the work and make sure disruption is kept to a minimum Wales & West Utilities has worked closely with Carmarthenshire County Council.

Wales & West Utilities Bethan Spencer is managing this gas pipe upgrade work. She 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 Carmarthen. 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.”
