Usk gas pipe investment  We’re investing more than £800,000 to upgrade the gas network in the Bridge Street area of Usk so we keep the gas flowing to homes and businesses in your area and to make sure you and your family are safe and warm for generations to come. To keep the local community, road users and our colleagues safe while we work Bridge Street and Castle Parade will be closed from February 2018 to April 2018 between the junction of Castle Street and New Market Street. Once our work on Bridge Street is finished we will be using rolling two way traffic lights on A472 between Little Mill and Usk. We know our work can be disruptive, so we’ve worked closely with Monmouthshire County Council to keep disruption to the local community, and to local road users, to a minimum.  We’re holding an information event in the community so people can come and find out more about our work. Members of our Team will be on hand to answer any questions people may have. The event will be held on: Tuesday 12th December 2017 between 1:00pm and 7:00pmat The Three Salmons Hotel, Bridge Street, Usk, NP15 1RY. We’ll also stay in touch throughout the project keeping you updated on our progress. 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. I hope this letter gives you the information you need on our work, but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on 0800 912 2999 or emailenquiries@wwutilities.co.uk. Alternatively, you can contact us on Twitter @wwutilities or Facebook.com/wwutilities. I appreciate this work may, at times, be inconvenient, but it really is essential to make sure that we keep the gas flowing to homes and businesses in your area and you and your family are safe and warm for generations to come. 
 
Yours sincerely Francis Kirk
Programme Controller
