A ROAD which partially reopened recently after a waterpipe burst forced its closure is to shut overnight later this month.

Egerton Street, in Farnworth, is to close for resurfacing for 10 nights from Monday, November 20.

The road will shut from Shaw Street to Bolton Road between 8pm and 6am for the work to be completed.

Vehicles will be prohibited from entering, stopping, standing, loading in the street.

The road was closed for nearly two months after a water burst at Moses Gate railway station in August.
