UPDATE: Traffic lights cleared in Lowestoft after sewer repairs are completed.
TRAFFIC lights and cones creating havoc for motorists in Lowestoft have been cleared as sewer repairs are finally completed.
Drivers can access Waveney Road from both directions, and the congestion at Bascule Bridge has eased, after work to fix a collapsed sewer at Station Square was finished on Friday, March 2.
It has taken six weeks to complete the �130,000 scheme- a week later than initially hoped- due to set backs workers faced while installing a new sewer lining.
A spokesman for Anglia Water said: 'They have been very important works and they needed to be done.
'Working on a sewer is never ideal and we have tried to minimise disruption. We tried to plan them for less busy times of the year by doing the work now rather than over Christmas.
'Like the Lowestoft residents, we are relieved these works are done.'
He added: 'We are sorry, but it is inevitable when working with sewers, but these are vital works.'
