The Ipswich Waterfront Pizza Express has been the site of emergency pipe works to get the restaurant’s doors open again.

On Monday the restaurant in Key Street had a sign on the door apologising to customers, stating it would be closed until further notice.

The pavement outside the restaurant was fenced off and workers had torn slabs from the ground to reach the pipes below.

Suffolk Highways have now sent private contractors in who have located and fixed the broken pipe.

They are also working to clear the path to the front door to minimise the disruption to the pizzeria.

There was no damage to the restaurant as a result of the emergency plumbing issues.

A Suffolk Highways spokesman said: “Third party contractors have now concluded their work on Key Street and returned the water supply to the restaurant.

“Work to allow customers to access the restaurant will be carried out today, December 4, and all paving should be replaced by the end of the week.”

The restaurant is still fenced off, with the Lloyds Avenue Pizza Express still open for business.

A village road is to be closed for the majority of a day so highways workers can carry out emergency repairs to the carriageway.
