Dismantling the gasholders

The gasholders on the site have already been decommissioned and are no longer used for storing gas.

The dismantling work started in 2015 and will be completed on a phased basis over a number of years. National Grid and our contractors have a great deal of experience in carrying out complex dismantling and remediation works, including the successful deconstruction of several gasholder sites across the UK, such as those at Battersea.

Our programme for dismantling the gasholders has been designed to minimise the impact of the works on local residents and businesses. We want to ensure that local people are fully informed about the works and will be providing more information on the dismantling process in due course.
