Gas main replacement in Farnborough Avenue

Southern gas networks are today, 10th October starting work to replace the gas main in Farnborough Avenue, which will include some works across the mouth of Copse view and Heathfield Vale. The majority of the work will involve open cut trenches in Farnborough Avenue, in the line of where cars would normally park, so existing flows will be maintained.
It will be necessary to close Farnborough Avenue whilst they trench across Heathfield Vale, connecting the new main to the existing one. Two-way lights will be in use on Heathfield Vale through this phase of works. Advanced warning of this closure will go out one week before it is due to happen, with a local diversion signposted.
NOTE: I have now been informed that Copse view will be closed from 25th October to enable the works passed the junction. Advanced warnings and a local diversion will be signed.
