lymington road, Dagenham

Start date: 23 August 2021

Duration: 8 - 10 weeks

Project manager: Alex Wright

Local delivery partner: JDT Utilities


Project overview

We are upgrading the gas pipes in various locations on Lymington road, David Road, Freshwater Road and Valence Avenue to ensure you continue to receive a reliable gas supply for many more years to come. Our aim is to replace all the metallic mains and service pipes in these locations. This means that we will need to excavate holes in the ground to access the gas pipes in order to inspect and replace them.

To deliver our work safely and securely, we will be using four-way traffic lights on Kemp road at the junction of Lymington Road. There will also be three-way traffic lights on the junction of Freshwater Road and Lymington Road. Lanes will be impacted at the existing four-way lights on Valence Avenue.
