Engineers are preparing to start work on a £65,000 upgrade to ageing gas mains.
Northern Gas Networks will replace around 280m of metal gas mains in South Elmsall.
Work will start on Little Lane at the junction of Mellwood Lane on Monday.
Two and three way traffic lights will be installed while the work is carried out.
The engineers will then replace gas main at the junction of Barnsley Road.
The project will take five weeks to complete.

“We would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience and thank members of the public for their patience whilst we carry out this essential work.”
