A ROAD has been closed in Sandown today (Monday) due to a collapsed sewer.

Island Roads has closed Station Avenue, between the Costume Workshop and the junction with St John's Road, while repairs are carried out.

The sewer collapsed outside the shop, around two metres underneath the road.

A diversion will affect Fitzroy Street, Winchester Park Road, Broadway, Avenue Road, High Street and St John's Road.

The closure will remain in place for a maximum of 21 days, or until the repairs are completed.
