The main road between Ryde and Sandown will be closed tonight (Tuesday) for emergency sewerage clearance works.

Brading High Street will be shut in both directions from 18:30* whilst engineers from Dyno Rod work to clear a clogged up sewer, which is causing properties in the area to flood.

Dyno Rod caused lengthy tailbacks in Brading for a short period this afternoon when they tried to quickly rectify the issue, but it has been deemed that a more intensive operation is required.
