Work to repair the collapsed sewer in Woodbridge Road, Ipswich.

Woodbridge Road in Ipswich has re-opened following work to fix a collapsed sewer.

A stretch of the road between Cauldwell Avenue and Boston Road has been closed in both directions since Saturday while Anglian Water carried out the work to the collapsed sewer, which was found by engineers investigating a dip in the road.

Traffic including buses have been diverted onto the adjacent Spring Road throughout the week.

The issue came just weeks after a burst water main close to the Lattice Barn pub caused the road to close for six days,

Temporary traffic lights in place at St Helen’s Street outside the Regent Theatre for emergency underground cable repairs by UK Power Networks have also delayed traffic on the route to and from town.
