Lancashire Telegraph: Travel delays in Haslingden after possible sewer collapse Travel delays in Haslingden after possible sewer collapse

HIGHWAYS engineers from Lancashire County Council are warning of travel delays on the B62321 Grane Road due to a possible sewer collapse.

One lane has been closed near to the Duke of Wellington pub in Haslingden and temporary traffic lights are in use.

This will enable engineers from United Utilities to investigate the situation and carry out repairs.

Ray Bennett, principal highways engineer for Rossendale, said: "People's safety is our main concern and we must close one lane to make sure the road doesn't collapse further under any vehicles. This will also allow the utilities company to investigate what has caused the collapse and carry out repairs to the road and sewer.

"We may have! to close the road altogether and put a diversion in place if the investigations reveal a major problem, but we will keep motorists informed.

"This will add extra time to journeys and we apologise for any inconvenience."

Surprise surprise another sewer collapse in rossendale. How many more roads are you going to dig up and ruin united utilities??? When I passed the other day there wasn't even any work being done, you would think they would be working round the clock to sort it out.

Well a number of men stood about in high viz jackets on Friday, temporary traffic light put up, miles apart and wrongly phased and the site abandoned 'til Monday when they messed about with a manhole cover, nobody has bothered to turn up Tuesday or Wednesday so it seems to be going as normal for this lot
