Five months of gas works for Sandiacre

THE NATIONAL Grid has said gas mains works in Sandiacre, which are expected to last until autumn, will cause ‘minimal’ disruption.

The M1 Corridor Gas Alliance, a partnership between the National Grid and Amec, is spending £7m replacing 30 miles of pipes in the area.

The work in Sandiacre starts on Monday and should last five months.

Construction operations engineer Paul Patrick said: “These pipes are designed to last for 80 years if left undisturbed.”

He added: “We are appealing for people to have patience with us during this work.”
