Three of the main roads in Totnes will be closed during a three month upgrade project. 

Three of the main streets in Totnes will be closed during a three-month project to upgrade gas pipes by Wales and West Utilities.

The project has started this week and will continue until the end of March. 

Wales and West Utilities has said the scheme is "essential" for gas supply to homes and businesses. 

The road closures will be as follows: 

  • Road closure on South Street ~ 4 January - 12 February 
  • Road closure on Fore Street from Station Road to the Arch ~ 4 January - 31 March 
  • High street would be closed to vehicles but not pedestrians 

BBC News quoted Abby Smith, spokeswoman from Wales and West, saying: "We know that working in areas like this is not ideal, but it really is essential to make sure we keep the gas flowing to homes and businesses in the area, and to make sure the gas network is fit for the future."

The work would also allow the network to carry hydrogen and biomethane for a "green future", she added, and said work would be completed as "safely and as quickly as possible", with minimum disruption.
