Statements regarding the emergency work on Victoria Street

Statement at 10.15am, Wednesday 23 March 2016

National Grid continue to excavate the gas escape on Victoria Street. We have received information from them this morning indicating that the works are likely to continue until Friday of this week. National Grid is working 24 hours a day to try to minimise disruption. We advise motorists to avoid the area or find alternative ways of travelling into the city over the next few days.

Statement at 4.30pm Tuesday 22 March 2016

Following a gas leak last night, emergency work is being undertaken by Transco in Victoria Street, Hereford. Herefordshire Council is making every effort to ascertain the length of the works, but as Transco is still exploring the leak we are unable to provide an expected end date. Where possible, please avoid the area or find alternative ways to commute into the city. We will provide updates via our social media channels as soon as they are available from Transco.
