Outland Road, Plymouth, will reopen at 3.30pm today
Outland Road, Plymouth, will reopen to traffic at 3.30pm today (Tuesday 29 September) following emergency sewer repairs.
The road was closed to traffic in both directions between the junction of Segrave Road and Peverell Park Road on Wednesday 23 September for South West Water to carry out emergency repairs to a collapsed sewer.
South West Water Project Manager James Howourth said: "During planned routine maintenance on the sewerage network, South West Water's contractors discovered the pipe had collapsed in three places. There was also a large void above one of the collapses, which could affect the road surface.
"Amey reviewed the video footage and agreed that emergency repairs needed to be carried out as soon as possible.
"Our contractors have successfully replaced the damaged sections of pipe, filled the void and lined the sewer.
"We'd like to thank the people of Plymouth for their patience and understanding while we carried out this emergency work."
