Kings Bridge is to shut to through traffic between 13/7 to the 16/8 this summer for essential gas works
During the 5 weeks that the bridge is to be closed to vehicles it will be open for pedestrian use only. The work, costing £70k will replace old gas pipes with new and is being timed for the summer holidays to minimise disruption.
Northern Gas Networks have informed Kirklees that staff will be working 7 days/week to ensure the work is completed on schedule. Diversion signage will be placed at strategic spots along the route.
Green Party Councillors Andrew Cooper & Julie Stewart –Turner met with Kirklees Highways staff and Northern Gas Networks representatives to discuss the project and to see how disruption to the closure of this busy entry point to the Town Centre can be kept to a minimum.
