The Wastewater network manager, Nicola Williams, said:- "This is a major junction and we urge drivers to avoid that junction, in Churchtown, and follow the diversions. We will assess the damage and begin repairs once we can get a proper look at what has happened. As a result the junction could be closed for several weeks.
