Visitors to Whitehaven harbour are being warned to expect some disruption after a sewer burst on West Strand yesterday evening.
The burst caused some damage to the road and has resulted in temporary access arrangements at the West Strand Marina and car park, Old New Quay car park and The Beacon Museum.
Initial repair work in the early hours of Friday 21 July revealed that the pipe, which normally carries wastewater from the local pumping station up to Whitehaven treatment works, is covered in concrete.
United Utilities say they took the decision to stop work at 3am and continue this morning:
We’ll continue to liaise with Whitehaven Harbour Commissioners and Copeland Council to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and minimise any disruption in the harbour area over the weekend.”
