ESSENTIAL gas mains repair work is due to be carried out on Durham’s Framwellgate Peth (A691).

Northern Gas Networks (NGN) says it will need to close the road heading into the city from 8pm on Friday until 6am on Monday.

There will be a diversion in place for the duration of the closure and NGN’s Customer Care Officers will be speaking to residents to inform them about the work.

Marc Grey, Site Manager at Northern Gas Networks, said “The safety of our customers and engineers is our number one priority, and closing the road is essential in ensuring the public and our workforce stay safe at all times.

“We would like to thank customers for their patience at this time and apologise for any inconvenience experienced. We will keep businesses and road users updated throughout the work.”
