Cuanto más alejado

Hola, necesito traducir la siguiente frase:

"Cuanto más alejada de nucleos plobacionales esté situada una tubería de gas, menores serán los efectos producidos, a consecuencia de una supuesta fuga, en la salud de la gente de los alrededores."

Mi intento es el siguiente:

if a gas pipeline is located further away, the health effects derived from a potential gas leak on the people in its surroundings will be fewer

Gracias a todos.

    The further away from populated areas a gas pipeline is located, the fewer / lesser will be the effects on the health of the people who live in the surrounding area, in the case of a leak.

    You can interpret the effects as being either "fewer" (diminished in number) or "lesser" (diminished in extent).

    The metaphorical "further" sounds strange here, Chris, and the "effects" being "lesser" poses a minor problem.
