Residents in Emsworth, Portsmouth, will face some traffic disruption over the next few months due to sewer replacement works.
A new sewer will be laid under Kings Road and Warblington Road by Southern Water to reduce the risk of flooding in the area.
Road closures will take place over the next few months, with sections of Warblington Road closed from the 11th of October and sections of Kings Road closed form the 18th of October. The work is expected to be completed in February.
While the work is taking place, diversions will be in place on all the roads affected, but residents will still have full access to their homes.
The new sewer line will run under Kings Road from Western Parade and from Warblington Road to its junction with Beech Road.
Dennis Taplin the drain maintenance engineer in charge of the works stated:
“This is an important scheme which will reduce the risk of sewer flooding.
“Schemes such as this will inevitably cause some disruption but I’d like to assure customers we’ll do all we can to keep this to a minimum.”
