BOLTON Road West in Ramsbottom is to be closed for one day on Monday between Hope Street and Alfred Street

The closure is to allow United Utilities to repair a leaking pipe discovered during work on the gas mains by Cadent.

There will be a diversion route in place via Lumb Carr Road and Bolton Road North.

Work recently began in the same as part of a £70,000 cash investment to replace ageing underground pipes.

The investment in local gas network is to help future-proof supply to thousands of homes

The old underground gas main has helped to heat thousands of homes in the Ramsbottom area for 90 years.

Installed in 1930, the cast iron pipe has reached the end of its safe operational life and 226 metres of it will be replaced without any need to disrupt the local gas supply or enter homes.
