EMERGENCY gas main repairs which have been causing traffic chaos for commuters could be completed in the next 24 hours.
Doncaster Road, Wath, has been closed since Friday, March 17, leading to lengthy delays on surrounding routes and for workers heading to and from Manvers.
A National Grid spokeswoman said workers had now repaired a second gas leak and checks were being made on the network this morning (Wednesday).
She added: “If we do not detect any gas readings then this will indicate that the repairs have been successful and there are no additional leaks.
“We will then be able to reinstate the road and reopen it. If we do detect gas readings further investigative work will be needed.
“We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but the safety of people is our top priority.”
