Motorists warned about four weeks of lane closures for gas works around Civic Centre in Poole

Bournemouth Echo: Motorists warned about four weeks of lane closures for gas works around Civic Centre in Poole Motorists warned about four weeks of lane closures for gas works around Civic Centre in Poole

THERE will be lane closures around the Civic Centre junction in Poole for up to four weeks due to gas works.

A single lane closure was put in place yesterday from Parkstone Road to the clock tower and also to the bottom of Fernside Road, while workmen from Southern Gas Networks (SGN) carry out pipe replacements.

Borough of Poole took to their Facebook page to warm motorists that the lane will remain closed until the roadworks are completed, which involves changing old gas mains with new durable plastic pipes. The aim, the Facebook post says, is to ensure the safe and reliable supply of gas into the future. Poole council have added that they have worked with Southern Gas Networks to keep the lane closures to a minimum and hoped that this would lead to minimal disruption to motorists’ journeys.

Anyone with questions about the work is asked to contact SGN on 0845 070 1431 or email mains@sgn.co.uk

Is there anyone out there who can explain why there is so much activity replacing gas pipes. It seems that virtually the whole of the network is gradually being replaced. Given their location some of the pipes cannot be that old.

So now Facebook posts are used as news items. Were there no other forewarnings of this? Signs etc. Or does Poole Council assume all motorists are 'friended' with them on Facebook?

Yes I'm sure they are replacing them just for the fun of it!

They're always closing roads in Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch for gas pipe works.

Why not close down all the roads in the conurbation for six weeks and let all the utility companies do their worst.
