South Way is closed due to a burst water main – 21 June 2017 to 23 June 2017


There is a burst water main on South Way near the junction of Second Way, the main is in the middle of the carriageway so we have no option but to close the road to complete the repair.

Diversions

If a closure is required a diversion route may need to be signed to assist traffic to find a suitable way around the closure and to minimise disruption.

The cost of installing, maintaining and removing diversion route signing is usually the responsibility of those organising the work. The cost will vary depending on the type of work.

The minimum notice period is ten weeks. In all cases the diversion must be agreed in advance with us and the police.
