Emergency work to repair a damaged sewer on Station Square, Lowestoft will begin next week.

The repair work will commence on 01 October and will last for approximately five weeks. A southbound lane closure will be in place on Station Square which will see traffic approaching from Denmark Road diverted via Katwijk Way/A12. Access for the emergency services will be maintained throughout the duration of the repair.

Further repair work will also need to be carried out on Commercial Road up to the A47 Junction which will last for 10 weeks, and will begin once the Station Square works have been completed. The road will be closed but a full diversion will be in place.

Regan Harris from Anglian Water said: “We appreciate this sewer is on a busy main road and we’re very sorry for any inconvenience the work may cause. We hate disrupting customers and road users, but the work needs to be carried out and we’ll be doing everything we can to minimise disruption.

“Currently we’re using over land pipes to ensure our customers in the local area can continue to use their toilets and washing machines as normal.”

The water company will have teams working to repair the sewer between 7.30am – 5.30pm on weekdays, with weekend work, if required, to complete the work as quickly as possible.
