This afternoon, a pipe was damaged during construction activity on Trafalgar Street, near Hamilton Road and Egerton Street, resulting in a natural gas leak. Union Gas, the London Fire Department and London Police Service are on site. Crews are working to repair the leak, however, expect some road closures and detours in the area while this work is underway.
As a precaution, buildings within a 100 metre distance from the leak have been evacuated. Outside of the immediate area, there is no risk to public safety. Emergency crews will continue to assess the situation.
It is expected that detours will be in place into the evening.
