Improving Gas Connections in South West England

Gas connections in south west englandThe demand for gas connections within United Kingdom is increasing at a rapid rate, especially within the South West of England which is lagging behind the rest of the UK in this area. In order to cater to this increasing demand, the utility companies are working hard in order to improve the gas connection and provide a better service for the people in need.

Usually gas connection works take around 6 weeks to implement and complete and the utility companies in the South West of England will have a plan of action for each area.   Some will link up with specialist organisations who are able to access grant funding to cover the cost of the installations, particularly in areas of high fuel poverty.

According to the utility companies, current gas installation projects are part of a multi million pound replacement programme, which is expected to be carried out over a period of 30 years. The entire programme is expected to cover other areas including Wales.

Old Pipes

These plastic pipes have a lifespan of about 80 years and people will not have to worry about any issues with their gas connections for a long period of time.
