AN EMERGENCY road closure in Ryde has been necessary from 11am today (Wednesday).

The Church Lane road closure is necessary to allow Southern Water to undertake repairs to leaking services.

The road will be closed for a maximum period of twenty-one days — or until the works are complete.

Road signs are in place — the diversion will affect Union Street, Esplanade and St Thomas Street.

Reasonable facilities will be provided to allow access to adjacent premises while the road is closed.
