Update - Eastern Road re-scheduled opening now 4am Tuesday 26 March

Eastern Road southbound reopens 4am Tuesday 26 March 2024. The cycle and foot path has already reopened

Update 3 - Monday 3pm 25 March

Eastern Road southbound reopens 4am Tuesday 26 March 2024. The cycle and foot path has already reopened.

The re-lining work of the 300-metre-long sewer is nearing completion. The final stage before the road can be reopened safely is to resurface the excavations. These will be left to set before and road sweepers clean the road.

We apologise for the disruption this work has caused residents, businesses and commuters. The work, which is part of a £1 million solution, is being taken now to avoid more challenging times in the future.

Update 2 - Eastern Road re-scheduled opening now Monday 25 March

The re-lining work of the 300-metre-long sewer is taking longer than anticipated due to unforeseen circumstances. Our teams are working throughout the day and night this weekend, to complete the repair as quickly as possible. This will delay the reopening of the Eastern Road, which is now scheduled for Monday 25 March.

We apologise for the disruption this will cause residents, businesses and commuters. The work, which is part of a £1 million solution, is being taken now to avoid more challenging times in the future.

Update 1

The re-lining work of the 300-metre-long sewer has affected the cycle and footpath on the east side of the Eastern Road and is closed between Anchorage Road and Farlington Roundabout.

Diversions are in place:

  • If approaching from the north or Farlington marshes, pedestrians and cyclists can use the roundabout to access the western cycle and footpath.
  • If approaching from the south, pedestrians and cyclists can cross the road to the west side of Eastern Road, at the traffic lights near Anchorage Road junction.

The work, which is still scheduled to finish on Saturday 23 March, is part of a £1 million solution to a string of disruptive bursts.

We apologise for any the disruption this will cause residents, businesses and commuters – but are taking this action now to avoid more challenging times in the future.
