Whitwell Road will be closed again today (Tuesday) for emergency repair works.

Island Roads said the road would be closed, outside Crickets, for ‘fault locating, excavation works to repair a low voltage mains fault.’ Crews will then restore supplies, back-fill and reinstate. It will remain closed while the works are carried out.
