Crawley leaking sewer pipe forces A23 closure

Part of a major road in West Sussex will be shut for the rest of the week after a hole was caused by a leaking sewer pipe.

The hole appeared on a section of the A23 north of the Crawley on Sunday.

The road has been shut northbound between the Fleming Way and Lowfield Heath roundabouts for repairs.

Thames Water said it was working with West Sussex County Council and the emergency services to put diversions in place.

"The closure is expected to last beyond this week while investigations continue," the spokesman said.

"We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and will open the road as soon as it is safe to do so."
