Sewer collapse on London Road – delays expected

Just saw the following e-mail:

"Dear Councillors,

I am writing to inform you that Thames Water have to attend to an urgent sewer collapse outside No.53 London Road starting from 0930hrs today.

Following a camera survey carried out by Thames Water yesterday, it has uncovered a broken section of the sewer which has also damaged the carriageway and poses a risk to the road structure.

To carry out these works safely, Thames Waters contractor (Cappagh) will need to close lane 1 (south side) on London Road from its junction with Denmark Road to outside No. 53. Works will be carried out from the carriageway and footway but it is not anticipated that the footway will be closed. It is estimated these works will be in place until 30th June, during which time Thames Water will be working extended hours and 7 days a week.

We have arranged for our Variable Message Sign (VMS) near to Cemetery Junction to state about the works and warn drivers of the lane ahead being closed.

Should you require any further informations or comments regarding this, please feel free to contact me."
