* Gas pipe upgrade work starts on the bridge next month.
Wales & West Utilities is to carry out gas pipe upgrade work on the bridge in Castle Street, Llangollen next month.
According to the company, this will start on Monday October 8 and take three weeks to complete with three-way traffic lights in operation for the duration of the work.
In a letter to local county councillors and the area’s Assembly Member, the company’s operations controller Paul Astley says the work is essential to “keep the gas flowing to homes and businesses in the area and to make sure people in the area are safe and warm for generations to come”.
The letter adds: “We’ll start on 8 October and our work will take three weeks to complete.
“To keep the local community, road users and our colleagues safe while we work we will have three way traffic lights in place while we are working. The existing pedestrian lights on Abbey Road will be turned off during this period and temporary pedestrian crossings will be in place.
“This essential gas pipe investment work is part of our multi-million-pound 30 year gas pipe investment programme across Wales and the south west of England.
“Old metal gas pipes within 30 metres of buildings are being upgraded to new, long lasting plastic ones. We are spending £1.4 million on this programme every week to keep the gas flowing and make sure your gas network is fit for the future.”
