CROSS Lane in Newport, which is off Staplers, has been temporarily closed to a burst water main.

Repairs are needed to be undertaken by Southern Water so a temporary closure has been put in place at Cross Lane from its junction with Staplers Road to its junction with Howard Close for a distance of 100m.

A diversion will affect Atkinson Drive, Cooper Road, Fairmount Drive, Greenfields Road, Newport Footpath 117 and Staplers Road.

The road will open as soon as the repairs are finished, up to a maximum period of five days.
