UPDATE FROM SGN – Gas Network upgrade in Ray Lane, Lingfield

Update regarding replacement project in Ray Lane, Lingfield.  SGN have now completed their network upgrade in Ray Lane and will be progressing onto the final phase of their project.

This safety-critical project needs to progress, rather than wait until the coronavirus pandemic passes, to ensure the local community continues to receive a safe and reliable gas supply.

In close consultation with Surrey County Council, SGN will start their final phase on Saturday 24 October and expect to last approximately two weeks.

Their engineers will be working on the A22 Eastbourne Road from the junction of The Common to just past the Ray Brook Bridge. For everyone’s safety, they will need to install temporary multi-way lights around this junction.

They will manually control the lights Monday to Friday, to assist with traffic flow.

The bus stops outside Albion House will be suspended throughout.

SGN have extra safety precautions in place to protect their colleagues and their communities from the virus. Their colleagues will be keeping to social distancing guidelines on the sites and they would ask communities to keep their distance too. For more information about our coronavirus response on SGN's website:

SGN would like to thank residents, businesses and road users for their continued patience and understanding while we carry out this essential work.
