REPAIRS to a defective sewer are set to close section of a residential street in Middlewich from tomorrow.

The work will be carried out on Rutland Drive for 12 days from Monday, February 17 through to Friday 28, February.

The work will be carried out on behalf of United Utilities and will involve an open cut excavation measuring 3.2 metres.

Emergency access will be maintained where possible.

A diversion will be in place that will see motorists avoid the closure by instead using Sutton Lane and Long Lane.
