The company expects the work to last 13 weeks, as it revamps an existing gas pressure regulator and installs an additional one at the junction – which links Fratton Road, Fawcett Road, Victoria Road North and Goldsmith Avenue.

The life span of the new plastic pipe is expected to be about 80 years – according to an SGN statement.
