Smithards Lane in Cowes has been from its junction with Newport Road to its junction with Tennyson Road for a distance of 44 metres.

The closure is to enable fault locating, excavation & works to repair a low voltage mains fault to restore existing supplies, backfill and reinstate.

The diversion will affect these streets: Newport Road and Arctic Road.
