Work item details

To allow for the construction of the new railway and to continue to ensure a safe and reliable gas supply, Cadent will be moving an underground gas pipeline that runs near Leicester Lane, Cubbington. We expect to complete all our work by the end of 2021. We will keep local people up to date as our work progresses.

We will shortly be finishing preparation activities and will be starting site set-up and main work to move the pipeline from 12 April 2021. The works involve:
• Setting up a temporary compound on land between Leicester Lane and Coventry Road.
• Installing fencing around our working area.
• Digging a trench for the new pipeline. We will look to bore a tunnel to install the pipe underneath Leicester Lane, so we can avoid closing the road.
• Welding the pipe together then installing it in the trench.
• Connecting and testing the new pipe.
There will be 24-hour security on site so we can maintain a safe working environment. Please note, there will be no on-site lodging.

The Public Right of Way between Leicester Lane and Coventry Road will remain open. So that we can carry out the work safely, we will be installing a fenced crossing where the footpath crosses our working area. Walkers will have priority, and signs will be in place to make people aware.
Construction vehicles will use the accesses we’ve constructed off Leicester Lane to reach the site. Signs will be in place to make other road users aware. Standard construction vehicles and equipment will be used, and all work will take place inside usual working hours.
