Redlands Road – one of Penarth’s main through-routes is to be dug up over the next 8 weeks.

Wales & West Utilities is to begin at 8-week-long programme of  replacing metal underground mains gas pipes with plastic pipes along Redlands Road in Penarth

Work starts on Monday June 13th and – by agreement with the Vale of Glamrogan Council – temporary traffic lights have been installed. The matter has not come before Penarth Town Council.

Where possible we will be working weekends to make sure that we get the job finished as safely and as quickly as possible, and to minimise disruption for local people and road users.”

    Wales and West Utilities Ltd recently completed similar work where I live and, yes, there was some, and at times considerable, disruption. I would much prefer this planned work to having nothing done apart from waiting for a major gas leak and its consequences.
    My experience was one of a minor inconvenience but what was noticeable was the workmen. Always ready to stop their work immediately to move vehicles etc. and the inconvenience was kept to a minimum.
