Road Closure notification at Old Church Lane

Published: 10 March 2021

Pateley Bridge Town Council were notified by residents that Northern Gas Networks intended to close Old Church Lane for up to 6 weeks from the 22nd March. Residents were concerned about the impact this would have during the lambing season and on residents who are reliant on home deliveries during the pandemic.

Residents and councillors met with representatives of Northern Gas Networks earlier this week to discuss their concerns. Northern Gas Networks were keen to work with residents to minimise disruption and have agreed that the essential wok will be carried out in stages. The lower part of Old Church Lane will be closed, as planned, from the 22nd March but access will be maintained for residents. The second phase will require a road closure and will be carried out later in the year, residents will be notified in advance.
