Motorists are being advised of a road closure in Hemel Hempstead as Cadent engineers probe a suspected gas leak.
A 15m eastbound stretch of St Albans Road off the Plough Roundabout (also known as the Magic Roundabout) will be temporarily closed after the rush hour period from approximately 7pm on Thursday 4 October to enable the required work to be carried out. Work is expected to continue into the following morning and may extend into the weekend.
The closure will enable engineers to dig down to an intermediate pressure gas main and locate and repair a suspected gas escape.
A signed diversion will be in place via Leighton Buzzard Road, Link Road, Redbourne Road, Swallowdale Lane and Maylands Avenue.
Local gas supplies are not expected to be interrupted during the work and local shops and businesses will remain open as normal.
