Gas switch on

Fri, 20 Jul 2018 07:56 by Teresa Floyd

Good morning

…and let's start today with some good news. A big push starts in earnest from 8am to get you all back on gas.

If you followed updates yesterday, you'll know we were able to restore gas supplies to around half of the 1500 properties affected by this loss of gas incident. You may have seen (or heard) that we continued working into the night last night to be absolutely satisfied that we could proceed with safely restoring supplies to the remainder. More »

A small army of engineers – drafted in from far and wide – are about to head out again to start switching your supply back on. So, just to stress again, if you can be in, please stay in. But if you need to go out, don't worry, we will call again, and we'll keep calling all through the day and into the evening if necessary. Or perhaps leave a key with a neighbour? We need to get inside your property to check all is working as it should.

We'd love to give you individually an idea on timing. It's just not possible, due to the numbers involved. Sorry.

And a very important reminder, please don't try to switch your own supply back on. It's just not safe and you must wait for one of our engineers to call. They'll make sure all your gas appliances are working safely. They carry ID – so ask to see it. It is what we expect, and want, our customers to do.

We'll try again to keep you updated through the day on this Facebook page. Our team is back at Deanshanger Memorial Community Centre (MK19 6HT), if you want to speak face-to-face.

We will keep going until about 11pm and we've got engineers ready to start again early in the morning.If you are not in when we call first time, we will call again, multiple times. If you need to go out, perhaps leave a key with a neighbour. We need access to your property to restore your supply. We know this is a big ask, but it will really help speed up the process.Please do not try to restore your own supply. It isn't safe and must only be done by one of our engineers. Also, please ask to see their ID before letting them in. We won't be offended and we'd much prefer you did this than otherwise be concerned.We expect tonight to have restored gas supplies safely to around half of the 1500 homes affected by this loss of supply incident. We'll be back early tomorrow to get to the remaining properties. We'll post a fresh update in the morning.We're getting there Deanshanger. We know you all just want your gas supply back on and it'll not be long now. Your patience is remarkable and much appreciated. All being well, we're expecting to have the bulk of this all sorted during tomorrow.Have a restful night everyone.>Oh no! We have an apology to make.We've realised we said this morning that we were ready to start turning supplies back on in Winwood Close, Moors Close, Diswell Brook Way, Honey Hill Drive, Goosemere and Kingshill Drive. We were too quick off the mark there. A genuine mistake, for which we apologise.We are hopeful of reaching these and other roads in Deanshanger tonight, but this is a big job - involving 1500 homes - and we hope we've been clear that we expect this incident to go beyond today for some of you. We are doing all we can to get you back on gas as quickly as we can. But our priority is to do it safely.Keep an eye on this page for updates. We will do our best to post on here which streets we are moving to next. You can help us speed this up by being in and staying in - if you need to go out, perhaps ask a neighbour who you know will be in, and let them have means to enter your property.You've been amazingly understanding through all of this and hope you accept our apologies for the oversight this morning.p>Hi everyone.

We've made good progress and can now start turning gas back on in the streets listed below. We know it's a big ask, and a challenge if you are at work, but if you make every effort to be in and stay in, that would help speed this up.

Just a reminder, please don't try to put your own gas back on. Our engineers need to do that, to ensure it's all safe and everything is working as it should. Please don't take risks. Also, our engineers carry official ID - please ask to see it. We won't be offended at all.

Gas problems update

Thu, 19 Jul 2018 15:22 by Teresa Floyd

We aim to have accessed all the homes we need to access by late this afternoon, to safely turn off gas supplies. This means we'll then be able to put gas back into our network and start the process of going back to each of the 1500 properties, to safely turn your supply back on. For your safety, it's very important you let our qualified engineers do this. More »

As we're dealing with so many properties, we can't make appointments or give guaranteed times when we'll call. But don't worry, if you are not in, we will call back. We'll keep coming back today and tomorrow, and into the weekend if needed. If you're still not in, we'll pop a note through your letter box explaining how to arrange a visit from one of our engineers.

Thanks very much for your patience. We'll have you back on gas soon. » Less
