Wales & West Utilities will be replacing the gas pipes in Old Exeter Street, changing the old metal pipes to new plastic ones. Whilst one recognises that the work is necessary to future-proof the gas supply it will lead to a significant degree of inconvenience. Old Exeter Street will be closed to through traffic for eleven weeks from the 17th of June. The contractor will maintain pedestrian access at all times and will give residents vehicular access when possible. They add that parking opportunities for residents will be restricted during the works and suggest that residents consider parking elsewhere.
There will also be interruptions to residents gas supply. Wales & West Utilities say that householders will be informed at least 24 hours in advance of their gas supply being turned off. This will be by a personal visit or a letter through the door. They will then need access to residents homes to ensure that the gas supply is safely turned back on.
We have received notification that there will also be a road closure to through traffic at Oldway, from Valley View to 79m north of Rocklands View. This closure is to allow for South West Water utility works. The closure will be from 2/9/19 to 25/10/19. The contractor will make every effort to maintain access for residents.
