WORKERS carrying out emergency repairs to gas mains have detected further gas in the air.
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.
It was due to reopen this morning (Thursday) but a National Grid spokeswoman said the road would remain closed until workers had established whether the gas detected was residual or from a new leak.
She added: “We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but the safety of people is our top priority.”
Doncaster Road can still be used to access businesses and homes.
