UPDATE @ 12:20 – The road has now reopened to traffic – buses returned to their normal line of route.
A road in Sandown has been closed this morning (Wednesday) with a one-way revocation being introduced.
Station Avenue has been closed from its junction with Albert Road for a distance of 24 metres.
The closure is necessary to allow Southern Water to carry out repairs to a frame and cover in the carriageway.
The diversion will affect these streets: Broadway, Avenue Road, High Street
The one-way restriction in Station Avenue will temporarily be revoked by the Isle of Wight Council from its junction with St Johns Road for approx 135m in an easterly direction.
The revocation is necessary to allow access to residences and businesses whilst the works are being carried out.
Diversion route(s) will be signed at the time of closure. Reasonable facilities will be provided to allow access to adjacent premises while the road is closed.
The closure order has been put in place from 00:00 hours on 8th July 2020 and will remain in place for a maximum period of five days or until the works are complete, whichever is sooner.
Southern Vectis bus routes 2, 3 & 8 are being diverted as a result.
If you have any queries regarding the above please contact Island Roads on 01983 822440.
Copies of all traffic orders may be viewed on the public notices website isleofwight.roadworks.org.
* Please note that the closure period of the order stated above is for legal reasons. In most scenarios, works are normally completed much sooner than the 5 or 21-day order. However, if the works do overrun, a new, updated order will be issued and published on Island Echo.
