West Berkshire Council confirmed today (Tuesday) that the road is now expected to reopen on Friday (February 11).

This is an emergency closure so that repairs can be made to a collapsed sewer in the carriageway, which is in danger of flooding businesses located along its path.

Pedestrian access has not been affected.

Although the works are taking place along Northbrook Street only, in order to maintain reasonable access for deliveries and other services, barriers have been put up where the rising bollards are located in Bartholomew Street, close to the Kennet Shopping centre car park entrance.

Gatemen are present to facilitate delivery and emergency access along this route.

Delivery access required for businesses located north of West Street has been maintained via Oxford Street and the London Road end of Northbrook Street.

A diversion is also signed on site for vehicles.
