One of the busiest roads in the borough will close from today for eight weeks.
Earle Street in Newton-le-Willows will be closed between Hillside Avenue and Viaduct Street.
The road closure is to allow the construction of a new surface water sewer, associated manholes and two foul water connections.
The work is needed for a new housing development.
Sirius Remediation Ltd is carrying out the work and it was decided to close the road to allow the project to be completed safely.
The road will re-open on Friday, April 15 at 6pm.
If you wish to discuss any issues with regards to these works, contact Tim Nix on 07714136572.
