Lowestoft sewer repairs will lead to disruption

Motorists driving through the heart of Lowestoft face up to five weeks of disruption from Monday as major work starts to repair a broken and collapsed sewer at Station Square.

The �130,000 repair work will see vehicles prevented from turning right from Station Square into Waveney Road as the middle lane of the A12 at Station Square will be closed.

Instead of being able to turn right motorists will be diverted via Denmark Road, Katwijk Way, St Peter's Street, Artillery Way, Old Nelson Street and Battery Green Road.

The middle lane of Station Road is being closed under a Highways Agency order and the organisation says it could be closed for up to five weeks.

Anglian Water is carrying out the repairs on the broken sewer which is about 5m below the surface of the road.

'It is anticipated that work will take around four weeks to complete due to the depth of the sewer, some five metres beneath the road.
