Engineers will set up a traffic management system on Collingwood Avenue as they replace ageing, unreliable cast iron mains with modern, long-lasting plastic ones.

The teams from National Grid Gas Distribution will begin work on Monday.

Four-way temporary traffic lights will go up on Collingwood Avenue, at the junction of Newton Drive and Beech Avenue. These will be in place for two weeks.
