Cox’s Lane, Wisbech, closed after tree branches get caught up with overhead power cables
A KEY Wisbech road has been closed after tree branches became caught up with overhead power cables.
Cox’s Lane has been shut and a diversion is in place while electricity company engineers work to resolve the safety risk.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire County Council said the road closure was “due to some trees fouling the high voltage (11KV) overhead power cables”.
The spokesman said: “The closure will enable the electricity company to remove the branches and prevent the safety issues identified to road users below.
“It is anticipated that the works to resolve the issue will be completed today and the road re-opened.
