A major programme of gas mains replacement is planned for Ludlow during 2015. A total of 700 metres of pipes will be replaced by National Grid Gas and their contractors Balfour Beatty.

Streets from New Road to Temeside will be closed or controlled with traffic signals at some point. The work will involve a mixture of open tranches for pipe replacement and intermittent pits for slip lining existing pipework.

There are no dates for the works yet. We are arranging meetings with the contractors and council officials. We especially want to avoid disruptions during the festivals and other days when visitors flock to Ludlow. We will as always keep you informed about the plans.
