Location and duration

Location: D5527 Chase Lane and Tennysons Lane, Haslemere. D5524 Scotland Lane, Haslemere

Duration: 25 November 2019 to 16 February 2020 (no works taking place over Christmas)

Reason for works

Replacement of old iron gas main with new polyethylene (plastic) pipes along with associated service connections from properties onto the new main. As the iron gas mains have been in the ground for decades, they are reaching the end of their useful life span. The reason the old iron gas mains need replacing is due to fractures and corrosion of the pipe resulting in gas leaks which could result catastrophic consequences such as damage to buildings, severe injury or even, in extreme cases, death. The benefits of new PE (plastic) pipes are; Resistance to corrosion, saves energy, smaller risk of leakage and recyclable.
