We are currently working through the 5 way junction along Beccles Road, this is were Church Lane/Mill Lane and Long Lane all join onto Beccles Road within a space of 60 metres, through this section we are working under temporary multi way lights and pedestrian crossings. The crew have installed the new 450mm ductile main underneath the existing 8” steel gas main.

The working area has also been kept to the bare minimum as to allow the traffic to flow freely.

We are still on course to finish Phase 3 on Saturday 27th October.
