A LOWER Gornal road is set to close for a week while work is carried out to sewers.

Summer Lane will close between Five Ways Roundabout and Shallcross Lane from Monday (May 17) until Friday May 21.

The closure is to allow for sewers to be connected.

The diversion will be via Church Street, Temple Street, Zoar Street, Abbey Road, Abbey Street, Summer Lane, and vice versa.

Access to properties and for emergency services will be maintained where safe to do so.
