A diversion route is in place via Peters Road, the council have said.

Council leader Sean Woodward announced the road closure on Facebook.

He wrote: ‘Southern Water has another collapsed sewer – this time on Brook Lane. As a result it is going to be necessary to close Brook Lane between Peters Road and the Brook Lane/Lockswood Road roundabout.

‘A signed diversion, via Peters Road, will be in place and the works will commence at 9.30am 05/12/19 for up to 3 weeks.

‘Best advice for the Brookfield School run that must be by car is park in Holly Hill Leisure Centre or Locks Heath Shopping Village and walk.’
