THERE has been an emergency road closure in Ryde this morning (Thursday).

West Street from its junction with Queens Road to its junction with Argyll Street has been closed for a distance of 84 metres. This is so Southern Water can make repairs.

A diversion is in place along Green Street, which will be sign posted.

The road will be closed until the work is completed — or for a maximum of five days, whichever is sooner.
