Newton Gas Mains Replacement

Listen

Work to upgrade gas pipes in Newton will begin in March 2019 and is expected to be completed by December 2019.

What is happening?

As part of their ongoing commitment to ensure that  homes and businesses have the best possible gas supply, APA Group, on behalf of natural gas distributor Australian Gas Networks (AGN), is upgrading South Australia's gas mains.

Work to upgrade gas pipes in Newton will begin in March 2019 and are expected to be completed by December 2019.

APA Group has appointed contractor Cooper Utilities to perform the gas upgrade.

What will the work involve?

APA Group are replacing old, high-maintenance gas mains. This involves excavation, the installation of a new pipeline and the backfill and reinstatement of the footpath and the road.  The gas mains upgrade will ensure more reliable gas supplies for the community and will reduce the possibility of leaks. 

How will this affect the community?

During construction, residents and businesses in the affected area may experience some noise and disruption from temporary traffic and access restrictions, trucks and other vehicles associated with the works.  There will be a regular street clean-up, site signage and traffic management. 

Cooper Utilities will be on site most days between 7am and 5pm (Monday to Friday). If any weekend work is necessary, APA Group will provide advance notice to those affected.

Access to properties and businesses will be maintained throughout the project under the guidance of traffic control staff.

Will I be without gas?

Contractors my need to temporarily turn off your gas supply. This enables them to safely replace the gass pressure regulator on your gas meter. If this does occur, you will receive a Temporary Interruption to your Gas Supply card in your mailbox the day prior to disconnection.  The card includes details of the times that your supply will be affected. Once our work is completed and if you are at home, we will relight your appliances. If you are not at home, we will leave an advice card with clear step-by-step instructions on how to relight your appliances. There will also be details of who to contact if you experience any difficulty or have any questions.
