Gas leak in Leamington leads to road closure

A GAS leak is currently being repaired in Princes Drive, Leamington.

Teams from Cadent are working to fix the leak, identified on a gas pipe under the junction of Myton Road and Princes Drive.

And as a result, Princes Drive has been closed at the junction of Myton Road while the work takes place.

This pipeline is part of a network that distributes gas to thousands of homes in the local area, for heating, hot water and cooking.

There should be no interruption to gas supply in the area, and a diversion will be signposted.

A Cadent spokesperson said: “The leak is under control, but is in a very difficult place for us to access, therefore we have had no choice but to close the road.

“We know that this will cause traffic issues in the local area, and we really appreciate everyone’s patience.

“Once we’ve got down to the pipe and assessed the nature of the leak, we’ll have a much better idea how long this will take repair, but please be assured we are working as quickly and as safely as possible”
