The work that National Grid has been carrying out since early May to replace a section of the gas main along the B4373 Bridgnorth to Broseley road is about to enter its second phase. For this phase of the work to be carried out safely, the temporary traffic lights that are currently being used will be removed and the road will close to through traffic completely for 16 weeks, starting on Monday 1st July.

While the road is closed, traffic will be diverted along the A458 toward Much Wenlock, and then right into the road known locally as Merrywell Lane, after which it will join the B4376 to Broseley. The diversion will be clearly signposted throughout.

The pipe that National Grid is replacing along the B4373 has developed several gas escapes over the past few months.  Engineers have considered carefully whether to repair or replace the pipe and have concluded that replacement is the best option.  The new sections of pipe will ensure that homes and businesses in the area continue to receive a safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come, and that further roadworks are unlikely to be needed along the road in the foreseeable future.

"We're sorry that we're going to have to close the busy B4373 for such a long period," said National Grid's head of network, Steve Murray, "but we really do believe that replacing the worn-out pipe is the right option. This is a non-standard size pipe and so repairing it would have needed parts to be specially made which would have taken several weeks.  But, installing a new pipe will,  provide a permanent and reliable solution."

National Grid is installing around one kilometre of new pipe, which is made from tough corrosion-resistant plastic, alongside the existing pipe. When the installation is complete, gas will be diverted from the old pipe into the new one, and the old pipe will be abandoned. The pipe is a key part of the National Grid gas network, and provides the gas supply to more than 7,000 homes and businesses in Bridgnorth.
