Major Gas Leak at Canford Bottom Roundabout

At just before 9.30am on Sunday 5th February a major gas leak occurred in the vicinity of the Canford Bottom roundabout on the A31. This has resulted in a significant number of road closures in that area. We advise that you avoid travelling in the area.

In order to affect repairs the gas main pressure is being reduced, households in the local area will have significantly reduced pressure which may effect heating and other gas appliances.

The risk to the public is low but as a precaution people are advised to keep windows and doors closed.

Please check on vulnerable or elderly neighbours to ensure they are not adversely affected by the drop in gas pressure.
