Gas problems continue
by Lizzie Massey
Emergency road works are still being carried out
in Gravesend town centre - and they could be there a
Workmen from Southern Gas Networks dug up part of Queen Street
at the junction with King Street and Parrock Street yesterday
(Thursday) after a gas leak was reported Wednesday night.
It had been hoped the leak would be fixed by the end of the day
but a second gas leak was discovered this morning.
One of the workmen said: “We think there may be a mains gas pipe
down there which we didn’t know about before, so we're just waiting
on plans for the area to come through before we can do much
“We don’t know how long it will take to fix.”
Diversions are still in place around the one way system, causing
delays at peak times. Buses and deliveries trying to get into the
heart of town are still being affected.
