Sudbury gas crews continue to restore service following Monday's leak

Enbridge is continuing going door-to-door to restore gas service to customers Wednesday following a leak downtown two days ago caused by road construction.

Leanne McNaughton, a spokesperson for the gas company, told CTV News in an email Tuesday night service has been restored to approximately 40 per cent of customers.

Crews were going door-to-door until 10:30 p.m. Tuesday and relighting natural gas appliances and would resume at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

This is after an excavator working on a downtown road project at the corner of Durham and Larch streets damaged a gas pipeline causing a major leak and subsequent road closures and voluntary evacuations.

About 130 customers total were affected by the service disruption. Top Stories

But any further renewal of the truce, now in its seventh day, could prove more daunting since Hamas is expected to set a higher price for many of the remaining hostages.
