FROGHALL Lane and Crosfield Street will be closed to traffic from this morning for emergency electricity works.

Scottish Power has detected two major faults on high voltage cables on the two roads either side of its junction with Midland Way.

Froghall Lane will be closed from its junction with Bewsey Road to Midland Way and Crosfield Street in a northerly direction from Nicholson Street to Midland Way.

It is hoped that work will be completed before the weekend.

Diversion routes will be signed on site and the electronic signs will be used to advise motorists of the closures.
