EMERGENCY repairs are underway after part of a 150-year-old sewer collapsed under Armley Town Street in Leeds.
Yorkshire Water is to close a section of the road where the collapse occurred on Thursday while repair work is underway.
A short diversion will be in place taking traffic via Whingate, Tong Road and Carr Crofts.
Work is being carried out by engineering specialists BarhaleWSP.
A Yorkshire Water spokesman said that the company was committed to re-opening the closed section of the road as quickly as possible.
