you must contact transco(southern gas network or whatever they are calling themselves this week) and pay for them to move it

Thanks chaps,but the wall the meter is on is coming down in 2 days and I need to get a move on.
They have said six to eight weeks after the quotation which takes a week.

What if I just shift the whole thing in its box, bend the yellow pipe a bit, tape it up nice and safe.

Then Transco can pop it back on to the new wall when we finish.

I am willing to pay to get a hurry up.

I mean, do you chaps know how they actually turn offthesupply to a property?

Do they have to dig up the road or just flick a switch at an exchange?

Would 50.00 in the right direction do the trick?

Thanks for your help my friends.

I feel my days as a builder in this country might be numbered if I keep getting held up like this.

I Don't have this problem in Spain or Poland. Everyone has a blind eye.
