MOTORISTS face weeks of traffic chaos after a sewer collapsed in one of Clacton's busiest roads.
Anglian Water is due to start roadworks in St John's Road near the junction with North Road early tomorrow morning.
A spokesman said it could take several weeks, depending on how deep the damaged sewer is.
"Hopefully we will know by the end of the week," he said.
Manually-operated lights will be used to reduce traffic to a single lane.
