Bournemouth Echo: Traffic delays expected on Monday morning after burst sewer on Poole's Blandford Road Traffic delays expected on Monday morning after burst sewer on Poole's Blandford Road

TRAFFIC delays are expected after a sewer burst on Poole’s busy Blandford Road.

Workers from Wessex Water were working to rectify the leak at the junction of the main road with Turlin Road and Allens Lane but the Borough of Poole could not say how long it would take to repair the road.

Temporary traffic lights were put in place to restrict while the work was carried out on Sunday afternoon and were still expected to be in place on Monday morning.

A spokesperson for Borough of Poole apologised to residents for the disruption to motorists that they anticipated the works may cause.

Wessex Water also confirmed that repairs were underway and apologised for any delays caused.

Stay in bed. Nothing much happening and its cold with strong winds. Although you could nip down to the burst sewer and take some photos for the Echo.
Don't forget the folded arm pose, a must for an Echo award.
