Cllr Stevens and Cllr Benington report that the Southern Gas Networks (SGN) have had some problems on their job at Norheads Lane and currently have lights up 24/7. They have had some issues with their gas governor mains and there is a high risk that gas pressure in the area can be compromised, potentially leaving a wide area of residents without gas.
SGN need to continue on with their repairs for a further two weeks (week ending 16/09). SGN will be manually controlling their traffic lights during peak times to aim to ease congestion whilst the local school starts/finishes. This means that rather than being on a timed setting, an operative will be overseeing the traffic and reacting straight away to any delays etc.
