Upcoming gas works and drop in session

From Monday 8 January 2024, Cadent will lay new low pressure gas mains as part of the wider Chelmer Waterside GPRS relocation works.

This stage will involve laying a new low pressure gas main, running parallel to the west of the Essex Record Office. It will connect into the existing main on Wharf Road and Cadent estimate it will take two to three months.

Cadent need to carry out these works so that GRAHAMS can progress the new access road and bridge works. Future phases will provide new low pressure gas mains along Wharf Road and through the Aspyre development.

If you have any queries about the wider Chelmer Waterside works, we will be holding two drop in sessions on Wednesday 31 January, from 10am to 2pm and 4pm to 7pm in the Essex Record Office. You can put questions to the Cadent team, contract partner Morrison’s Energy Services, Chelmsford City Council and GRAHAMS (the bridge contractors).
