It has come as a bit of a surprise to Fishertown residents to find out that major road works will commence in that area next week. The Gurn understands that work to replace old and potentially leaky gas pipes will commence in Harbour Street on Monday and the work will be completed in 30 metre sections. A resident in the area said on social media: "I got a letter last week.The work will start between 4th and 11th May and will take approx 16 weeks."

The new pipes are being stored on the site of the former gas works.
