New gas pipes in Milngavie

Scotland Gas Networks is going to begin working in North Dumgoyne Avenue, Milngavie from Monday, September 22 as part of their ongoing project to renew the gas mains and services in the area.

It will take approximately six weeks to complete.

The existing gas mains and services in North Dumgoyne Avenue have reached the end of their useful life and they will be replaced with modern plastic (polyethylene) pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.

For safety and to allow room to manoeuvre equipment, North Dumgoyne Avenue will be temporaily closed - in phase one between James Watt Road and Clochbar Avenue. Traffic will not be able to exit Clochbar Avenue on to North Dumgoyne Avenue. In phase two between Clochbar Avenue and Craigton Road. A signed diversion route will be in place.

Hannah Adam, spokesperson for Scotland Gas Networks, said: “We would like to apologise to residents and road-users for any inconvenience caused while we carry out these essential works. We will be working seven days a week to complete this essential work as quickly as possible and will do everything we can to minimise disruption.

“The new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that once the work is complete Milngavie residents will be able to enjoy a continued safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come.”
