A road in Weymouth will be closed for almost four weeks whilst a sewer is renovated.

Church Street in Upwey will be closed between its junctions with Stottingway Street and Goulds Hill, approximately 850 metres.

This closure will start on Monday, January 8 and is expected to be completed by Friday, February 2. 

This closure allows Wessex Water to carry out sewer renovation works to prevent infiltration - which is when groundwater seeps into the system.

The alternative route, which will be signposted is as follows: B3159 - C53 - A354 - B3159.

For further information about the work being undertaken and access arrangements, call Wessex Water on 07867 462930.
