Diversions in place from Monday, January 6 while a new sewer is installed.

THE main road through Westward Ho! will be closed for the next month while a new sewer is installed.

The £60,000 scheme will see Nelson Road closed from Monday (January 6) while South West Water and H5O installs 150 metres of new sewerage pipe work.

Diversions will be in place and it is expected to take around four weeks to complete. There will be access for residents.

“It is important we continue to make these improvements to the sewer network which will help alleviate local flooding problems,” said project manager Andy Young.

“We will be working hard to minimise disruption to the public and businesses as far as possible while completing these essential improvements.”
