THERE'S likely to be traffic delays for people getting in and out of Lowestoft tomorrow from the north end of the town as emergency roadworks is to be carried out.

It follows a collapsed sewer pipe earlier today in Yarmouth Road.

Temporary traffic lights will be in use from 7am tomorrow on a 20 to 30 metre section of the road close to Denes High School and the junction of Corton Road. Gangs will be working round the clock but the work could last up to two weeks and will cause more traffic headaches for frustrated motorists just days after suffering delays from closures of the bascule bridge.

Anglian Water need to carry out emergency work to repair the sewer pipe which collapsed. Workmen need to access the nearest upstream manhole cover from the site of the collapse in order to pump sewage from the affected area while repairs are carried out.

The Highways Agency issued an appeal last night for drivers to allow extra time for their journeys or seek alternative routes.
