A lane closure will be in place on the roundabout heading towards Tingley Common throughout the three-week project.

The lane closure is expected to cause delays.

Northern Gas Networks said engineers will need to access some customer's homes to complete the project and ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas.

James Knox, business operations lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused during these critical works.

"However, it is vital we complete them in order to continue to maintain a safe and reliable gas supply to the residents of Tingley."
