A ROAD closure was put in place in Cowes from 2pm today (Wednesday), so emergency repairs can be carried out.

Pallance Lane will be closed from its junction with Pallance Road to its junction with Wyatts Lane for a distance of 148 metres.

Diversion routes have been signed from the time of closure. Reasonable facilities will be provided to allow access to adjacent premises while the road is closed.

The closure will be in place for a maximum period of five days or until works are completed by Southern Water, whichever is sooner.
