Roadworks on a section of a busy Southall road have been delayed yet again due to flooding.
National Grid said half of the roadworks in Park Avenue, which were started in September last year and run between the junction of South Road and Avenue Road, were complete.
But problems with flooding mean the work is now expected to be completed in June, seven months after an original target of November last year.
A National Grid spokesman said work would also be put on hold to enable next month's Vaisakhi procession, on April 9, to go ahead.
It means work will be cleared the previous weekend, before it resumes on April 18.
Gas distribution network engineer, Brent Tattam, said: "Repairing this gas pipe is important as it plays a vital part in supplying gas for cooking and heating to the local area.
"This repair involves us having to dig a lot deeper than we usually do and we have faced the additional problem of flooding in the excavations.
"We always try to deliver our work as considerately as possible which is why we’ve suspended the project several times to enable local events to continue unaffected by the project.
"This means we have to fill in our excavations and clear the site and then re-excavate and set the site up again when we return, which takes time."
The flooding was caused by a series of water leaks in the area, which led to excavation areas being flooded and becoming unsafe to work in.
All the water had to be pumped out and the excavations re-secured before work could resume.
A signed diversion will be in place via Uxbridge Road and South Road and vice versa, with access maintained for residents, businesses and local facilities.
Work began on the road to fix a faulty pipe.
Engineers use specialist kit and dig large scale excavations as deep as five metres, which is around five times the height of a kitchen counter.
