Emergency gas repair work taking place in Hebburn - drivers warned of changes

Drivers and households are being warned after teams were scrambled to deal with a gas leak.

Northern Gas Networks said a leak had been identified in Victoria Road West, outside Hebburn Community Fire Station.

The company, which delivers gas to homes across the North of England, said the location of the gas main in the road meant workers have temporarily disconnected the four-way traffic lights at the site and replaced them temporary traffic lights.

The company said gas engineers are working to carry out the repair as quickly as possible will keep the public updated.

“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.”
