The new gas main is now fully installed. Finalising the individual connections and decommissioning the existing gas main still requires a further three weeks work which will require road closures, identified below:
Empress Drive 9 - 13 October; Castle Drive 14 - 20 October; Mona Drive 21 - 25 October;
Signage will be place in these areas if dates need to alter. Parking will be suspended while the works are being carried out. Please note there is also a parking suspension on Empire Terrace to facilitate emergency vehicle access.

Please also note that the contractor will be working on the gas main connections which will involve prohibiting access to Esplanade Lane south from Monday 5 October. Access to the Esplanade properties will be maintained via Esplanade north lane at all times and the car park entrance to Empress Apartments will be fully accessible.
Please note the contractor will be working on excavating joint holes in front of Castle Mona Shops early next week. This will result in the displacement of 1-2 spaces for a short period.Updated on 02 October 2020
