National Grid engineers will be upgrading the gas mains in Castleton to keep the gas flowing until the end of the century.
In the six-week project, starting Tuesday, May 31, National Grid will be renewing 400 metres of gas pipes in Goosehill and The Stones. The existing iron mains will be replaced with larger, tough, durable plastic pipes that will help meet rising demand for gas in the village and last at least 80 years.
Work will also take place on the footpath leading to Peak Cavens. Access will be maintained during the project.
National Grid authorising engineer Paul Martin said: “Castleton is likely to be very busy over the Bank Holiday so we have scheduled the work to start afterwards.”
