After many years of waiting, Anglian Water are finally attempting to remedy the problem of the blocked drains on Church Street. They have made several piecemeal attempts before – all to no avail – including one famous intervention that led to several drain rods getting stuck! This time it seems they are attempting a far more invasive approach. The downside is that Church Street will be closed to all traffic during certain times of the day – between 8am and 4pm.
The work is expeted to be complete on Friday 14th August. If the everything proceeds quickly the road will re-open sooner.
