A ROAD closure which is causing traffic chaos for commuters could be in place for a third week as emergency gas main repairs continue.
Doncaster Road in Wath has been closed since Friday, March 17, leading to lengthy delays on surrounding routes.
A National Grid spokesman said two leaks had been repaired but its workers suspected others on the road.
He added the plan was to reopen the section of the road where the work had been carried out over the weekend but then carry out further works between Beech Road and Avenue Road from Monday.
The spokesman said: “We are carrying out an essential repair to the gas mains network.
“This work will help ensure people in the area keep on enjoying safe and reliable gas supplies for cooking and heating.
“If people think they can smell gas they should call 0800 111 999.”
