One of SGN’s high pressure gas mains was damaged in Newbattle Road (B703), Newtongrange, Midlothian, on Wednesday morning, 6 January.
SGN engineers worked hard through the night last night and their work towards making a repair continued today. This involves complex engineering, using specialist equipment. Due to this their work is likely to continue for several days.
To ensure everyone’s safety, Newbattle Road will remain closed to both traffic and pedestrians between Galadale Drive and Newbattle Gardens while SGN work by the road. A signed diversion route is in place via the B6482 (Dalhousie Road), the A7, and the B6392 (Dalhousie Road). Access to Newbattle Abbey Crescent and the surrounding properties is being maintained via Eskbank. All businesses in the area remain open as usual.
SGN are very sorry for inconvenience caused and would like to thank road users and local residents for their continued patience while we carry out their work.
SGN would like to assure the local community that there is no risk from the gas escape which has occurred as a result of the damage and their engineers continue monitor this closely.
They will do everything they can to complete their work as quickly and safely as possible and will continue to provide updates as work progresses.
