As mentioned in a previous news update, British Land is working with SGN to divert the gas main pipe located under Surrey Quays Shopping Centre car park. The gas main needs to be diverted to allow construction of the first phases of the Canada Water Masterplan. We expect all works associated with the gas main diversion to be completed in Autumn 2020.
Work taking place from the week beginning 29th June through to mid-August 2020
From 29th June, SGN will move into the next phase of work on Deal Porters Way and on Surrey Quays Road. The work area is shown on the image below as well as the associated traffic management measures and pedestrian diversions. These works will be undertaken in strict adherence to Government and industry guidance, which includes working at social distance.
SGN’s contractor, JDT Utilities, will be carrying out the work on their behalf. Engineers will be working Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm, and on Saturdays between 9am and 4pm. In consultation with Southwark Council, SGN have agreed to work extended hours on a Saturday, to complete the gas main diversion as soon as possible.
Keeping in touch
We will provide further updates on the works as they progress, including the location and impact of each further phase of work before it begins.
If you have any questions or concerns in advance of or during the works, please get in touch with the Canada Water Masterplan team. When appropriate, calls or queries will be diverted to SGN’s customer contact centre, where they are best placed to answer any questions. In the event of an emergency (smelling gas for example) please call the National Gas Emergency Number on 0800 111 999.
