Shopping street closed.

A MAIN route into a Warwickshire town will be closed from next Monday, for a period of eight months.

Warwick Road - Kenilworth's main shopping street - will close between the St John's Gyratory (the Jet garage roundabout) and the Waverley Road junction to facilitate work on Severn Trent Water's pounds 14million flood alleviation scheme which is overhauling the town's ageing sewer system.

Temporary waiting restrictions will be introduced nearby, while motorists will be stopped from parking in Whateley's Drive and in Randall Road - between numbers 63 and 45, numbers 50 and 52, and numbers 64 and 68.

Shops are braced for a loss in trade.

Cllr Martin Heatley, Warwickshire County Council's portfolio holder for the environment, said: "These works are an essential part of Severn Trent Water's scheme and we regret any inconvenience this may cause. We are working with Severn Trent to try to ensure the disruption to motorists is as minimal as possible."

Buses will be using a temporary route while Warwick Road is closed.

Service 12, operated by Travel Coventry, and Services 16, X17 & U2, operated by Stagecoach, will be affected.
