Works in your area
Maintenance and upgrade work on our network ensures a safe and reliable gas supply to all of our customers. However, we recognise the impact these works may have on our customers and aim to minimise any disruption to you when performing these essential works
A list of our current work areas is below and includes:
Reliability Works – includes routine or emergency repairs to improve supply or prevent future interruptions.
Mains Upgrade Program – we are upgrading our low pressure cast iron underground pipelines to high pressure polyethylene pipelines to improve reliability and meet customer growth and demand. These works occur progressively along a street, briefly impacting 6-10 houses at a time with supply interruptions for up to 8 hours each.
If our planned works are expected to impact gas supply to your property, you will be notified via letterbox drop at least 10 days prior to the outage and again 24-48 hours prior to the interruption. All excavations will be reinstated to as near as the original condition as possible. There may be occasions where your gas meter needs to be moved due to these works, in which case we will be in touch to discuss a new position.
While we are working in your area, it is appreciated if residents can keep the street clear where possible, provide clear access to your gas meter and ensure pets are securely locked on your property. Where we have reinstated gardens, lawns and nature strips, please water daily to ensure growth.

Frequently Asked Questions
This is part of our commitment to the safety and reliability of your gas supply.
Whilst a project will go on for several months, each property will experience a single supply interruption of up to 8 hours to allow for the installation of the new pipe.
You do not need to be home during the works, but please ensure we have access to the gas meter and that street parking is minimised. If you are not home when we restore your supply, a “How to safely turn on your gas supply” card will be left in your letter box providing instructions on how to relight your appliances. If you are not comfortable with relighting your appliances, please contact us on 132 691 when you return home and we will send someone to relight your services for you.
You will receive a letter drop notification at least 10 days prior to the interruption. A further reminder notice will be provided 24-48 hours before interruption to your supply. The second notification will provide you with the date of your interruption.
If nobody is at home once supply is restored, a “How to Safely Turn on Your Gas Supply” card will be left in your letter box providing instructions on how to relight your appliances. If you are not comfortable with relighting your appliances, please contact us on 132 691 when you return home and we will send someone to relight your services for you.
No, your current gas meter will be connected to the new pipes. However, if it is determined during the mains upgrade works that the current meter requires replacement, our contractors will complete the meter replacement as deemed necessary.
Should you require assistance with relighting appliances following the meter replacement, please contact our Faults and Emergencies department on 132 691.
As we are upgrading the old assets they are required to be brought up to today's standards. Your gas service may be running underneath a structure or the position of your meter may no longer be deemed as safe. In these cases you will be contacted to discuss a new meter position.
The cost of the works are borne by Multinet Gas. However prior to starting works a safety pressure test will be performed on your existing fitting line. If this fails you will be required to engage your own plumber to rectify.
This test identifies if there are any leaks in your fitting line.
