Severn Trent Water is to carry out work later this month to repair a collapsed sewer on Castle Foregate, Shrewsbury – outside number 41, Morris Lubricants – which is causing internal flooding at the premises.

Work is due to take place from 15 May 2022 and take up to three days to complete.

To carry out the repairs a 3.5 metre deep excavation will be required within the road, with temporary two-way traffic lights installed for safety purposes for the duration of the work.

During the work a traffic management operative will be on site from 7am to 7pm to monitor and react to any traffic build up.

People are encouraged to use alternative routes into the town centre whilst the work is taking place.

Residents and businesses will be notified and advance warning signs are to be erected on site. The work will also be advertised on the variable messaging signs in and around Shrewsbury.
