Traffic disruptions can be expected in Liversedge this weekend as Northern Gas Networks repairs a damaged gas main.

Temporary four way traffic lights have been installed at the Frost Hill A62 junction with Bradford Road.

Wayne Stones, Network Officer, Northern Gas Networks, said: “We’ve established the cause of the gas escape by using CCTV inside the mains and our engineers are working hard to repair the escape as soon as possible.

“We’d like to apologise to pedestrians and motorists for any inconvenience caused while these essential repairs are carried out. To minimise traffic congestion, we are manning the temporary traffic lights from 7am to 7pm to control the traffic flow. We hope to complete this essential emergency work before Monday morning’s rush hour.

“The safety of members of the public is always our first priority and we’d like to thank everyone for their cooperation.

“Anyone who smells gas should call the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999.”
