UK Power Networks is working with the other Electricity Distribution Networks and our trade body, Energy Networks Association, on a new national campaign called Be Winter Ready.


Be Winter Ready aims to encourage people to prepare in case they experience a power cut or gas emergency this winter.


We’re contacting all of our stakeholders to make you aware of the campaign and to ask if you could help share this important information.

Background

In recent years the chances of unscheduled problems with electricity and gas supply have dropped dramatically. Since 1990, network companies have invested £80bn in improving the reliability of local energy networks in the UK.

As a result, on average, electricity customers have a power cut just once every two years and gas distribution customers will have their gas supply interrupted without advance notice just once every 40 years.

 

Whilst the UK’s gas and electricity supply is very reliable, bad winter weather can cause damage and disruption.

 

Steps you can take to ‘Be Winter Ready’:


Know your free emergency numbers: In a power cut dial 105 or, for a gas emergency, dial 0800 111999.

Prepare your home: Keep a torch handy and get your appliances serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

Register as a vulnerable customer: Vulnerable households can get extra support by signing up to the Priority Services Register.  Click here to access our website go to power cuts tab and follow the  link to find out more about the  ‘Priority Services Register’ in London, the South and East of  England or to sign up.

Keep your eyes open: Keep an eye on the weather forecast  and,you have a power cut or a gas emergency, check on your  neighbours.


Tools to help you spread the word

We are also asking people to sign up to a Thunderclap for 2nd November. It would be great if you can sign up to the Thunderclap to help us reach as many people as possible through social media.

Better Journeys on Better Roads: 2017/18 Maintenance and Improvement Programme East


Highways England operates, maintains and modernises the strategic road network in the East of England.  We are committed to making journeys more reliable and ensuring that the region’s roads are fit for now and for the future.


I am writing to let you know about the following upcoming works on the A47 Vauxhall roundabout:

·       Road resurfacing and lining on the A47 Vauxhall roundabout

Once completed, the works will provide a better quality of road surface for road users. This scheme is being incorporated into the diversion route that is currently in place for the works to the Acle Straight, to ensure efficient working.

Traffic Restrictions

In order to carry out our work as quickly and safely as possible we will need to put in place some temporary traffic restrictions and diversions:


·       Full closure of the A47 Vauxhall roundabout from Thursday 16 November to Friday 17 November between 8:00pm and 6:00am


We will endeavour to complete the works during the dates above, however, these are weather dependant so delays may occur.


We have included the diversion route for the closure below.

Contact us

If you wish to discuss this project further, or have any questions about this work, then please contact our 24hr Highways England Customer Care team by phone on 0300 123 5000.

Alternatively, you can email GRAHAM Construction who will be carrying out the works at [email protected]


We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works may cause you.

Yours faithfully
