Island Roads has said an emergency one way restriction will be in place on Newport’s South Street this evening (Thursday) while repairs are carried out to a burst water main.

The road will be closed at 7pm, from its junction with Church Litten to its junction with Furrlongs.

Traffic in the area is heavy in the area as a result and there are delays throughout Newport as Fairlee Road remains closed due to a separate burst water main.

Isle of Wight Radio has contacted Southern Water.
