Project to replace gas mains in Theale High Street CANCELLED

I checked the status of the project to replace two of the three gas mains in Theale High Street with the Southern Gas Networks project engineer. He informed me that the project has been cancelled. The gas company had an obligation to replace gas mains under OFGEM's Price Control Review formula. OFGEM has changed the formula, so this project has been cancelled for the foreseeable future.

The gas mains replacement project had caused the postponement of West Berkshire Council's project to resurface the part of Church Street between Englefield Road and Station Road. This was because the gas mains project would have involved digging up part of the Church Street/Station Road junction. This reason no longer exists, so I have now asked the council to start the resurfacing project as soon as possible.
