MOTORING chaos looks set to continue as sewer repairs take place on a busy Wigan main road.
The weekend’s heavy rain slowed down engineers trying to replace a collapsed section of drain which runs down the middle of Orrell Road, Orrell.
United Utilities engineers said they hoped to have completed the repair by last night but it would only be “mid-week” before the route would be open to traffic due to back-filling and resurfacing work.
The alarm was raised last week when properties near the junction with West Mount experienced waste-water flooding and works began on Friday evening. A diversion goes via Moor Road, Church Street, Winstanley Road, Pemberton Road, Billinge Road, Enfield Street, Ormskirk Road.
