TWO-way traffic lights will be in operation on Cobb Road in Lyme Regis for an estimated six weeks while essential gas works take place.
Work to replace the old, metal gas mains with a new, plastic pipe will ensure a “safe and reliable gas supply”. The work will be carried out by SGN, starting on Monday, April 30 and is estimated to take six weeks to complete.
A statement from SGN read: “In consultation with Dorset County Council, our work will start on Monday 30 April 2018 and last for approximately six weeks. Our work will begin in Cobb Road near Lyme Regis Holiday Homes, progressing southward up to Cobbs Road’s junction with Ozone Terrace.
“To ensure everyone’s safety, temporary two-way traffic lights will be in place around our work area in Cobb Road for the duration of our project. We’ll be working extended hours and at weekends to help minimise inconvenience.
“We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Lyme Regis residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.”
