Newport city centre gas works won't be finished until Christmas

South Wales Argus: City centre gas works won't be finished until Christmas City centre gas works won't be finished until Christmas

WORK to finish essential gas works in the city centre are unlikely to be finished until December and possibly as late as a few days before Christmas.

Wales and West Utilities initially said that gas works in High Street and Commercial Street were aimed to be finished in September, then revised that to later in the autumn.

Now the firm anticipates it will finish the work in the last month of the year, and a Newport council streetworks report suggests they could run until December 21.

Worries from traders, many of whom had benefited from temporarily-withdrawn buses on High Street, have led the leader of Newport council to call for the works to be finished as quickly as possible.

Ken Ellis, president of the Newport Chamber of Trade, said the works would have a "massive effect" on Christmas trading with no buses returning to High Street and with the area in a "mess".

"We have emphasised to the company having it completed before Christmas means having it completed six weeks before," he said.

Tony Turner, butcher in Newport Market, said: "When you see two to three men on the job we wonder what is going on. We're asking them to get more men on the job."

Jon Powell, of the Kiosk on High Street, said for weeks there had been only three people on the job.

"There isn't much money left. I was prepared for all this, I saved money. But we were expecting it to be done before Christmas," he said.

Jane Lalies of X-Clusive Jewellery in Newport Market, said: "It's unsightly at this end of town. It's putting people off coming here. It isn't helping trade in the slightest".

A Wales and West Utilities spokesman said the delay was due to unforeseen difficulties encountered during excavation of the old gas main.

A spokesman for the utility firm said it regretted the delay, which he said was necessary for safety reasons.

He said the firm was aware of the inconvenience caused and assured people that its doing all it can to complete the work as quickly as possible.

"The scale and complexity of the project means that our team may need to work in different locations as the scheme progresses," he added.


THE leader of Newport council has called for Wales and West Utilities to get the work done as quickly as possible.

Councillor Bob Bright said he has called for an urgent meeting with Wales and West to drive forward the scheme and explore options to plough more resources into the project.

Newport Chamber of Trade's Ken Ellis has also been invited to meet officials from Wales and West.

"My officers and I will also be receiving regular updates to ensure all deadlines are being adhered to and that further improvement works can happen as planned and on-time," said Mr Bright.

Wales and West said it had been due to meet the council but the meeting was postponed and is hoped to be rearranged.

Wales and the West NOT the Council have had problems with the work.

The Council can ask Wales and the West to increase manning levels but as they are a private companyCANNOT LEGALY force them to do so.

Apologists for Newport council need to remember that other towns and cities are not suffering the crippling, slow and agonising deaths of their high-streets to the same extent as us.

All you need to do is look at the utter farce of Friars Walk, the Kingsway center referb, have you been in the indoor market recently? its EMPTY.

Its not just residents complaining, if you do a search on google, one journalist likened a trip to Newport as a terrorist atrocity, his words, not mine, but when you look at the sheer number of dead businesses, empty shops and whats left, coffee shops, we have plenty of those, if it's not Newport Council, who the hell is it? And why aren't Newport Council doing something about it??

Maybe we should organise a day trip for all the councilmen so they can visit Cardiff, go look in the St Davids 2, or just a walk up St Marys.. Or a trip to Bath or Bristol, all examples of how a poor economy do not directly correlate to a high-street that appears to have suffered a bombing raid.

There are actions the council can take towards Wales and west. What concerns me more Is the fact that an essential meeting between them and the council was delayed. Who postponed the meeting. If it was the council they have a lot of answering to do.

What would you suggest my "somewhat dubious agenda" is?

If i were to have an agenda, it might be to find a way for ordinary tax paying residents to understand why it seems our council is woefully incapable of preventing our once proud town from sliding into a spiral of debt and abandonment.

I'm from Newport, i live in Newport, but i have lived elsewhere, almost everywhere else I've been has been markedly better and despite my love for my hometown, i'm deeply ashamed of the filthy state its been allowed to wallow in.

I didnt get murdered and took the opportunity to admire some of the fine architecture in Commercial Street on the civilized stroll to the curry house. As for 'Chavs' - if by that you mean the charming folk who congregate socially in the city centre for a soupcon of White Lightning and perhaps a little tobacco - you couldnt wish to meet a nicer bunch of people, if you take time to stop and say hello. Incidentally, the vista from the top of the old tax office across our fine city is one of the finest views I have ever come accross! (save perhaps the view accross Chamonix from the Aguil de Midi)
