Thames Water had to undertake emergency works on Datchet Road in October after a hole appeared in the surface. It then discovered a second collapse to the roof of the sewer further upstream.
Repair work was delayed until the Christmas shopping period was over. But traffic restrictions will now come into place in the area from January 13.
Work repairing the sewer will be combined with a separate job that needs doing in Thames Avenue.
Instead of closing the junction of Datchet Road, Thames Avenue and Thames Street completely, temporary restrictions will be introduced in order to keep the roads open. Advance Warning signs will be put in place.
The restrictions will consist of a 'no left turn' into Thames Avenue when travelling northbound on the B3022 Thames Street and 'no right turn' into the B3033 Thames Street when travelling eastbound on Thames Avenue. Temporary three way lights will replace the permanent lights.
The work will start 9.30am daily for about three weeks at the junction of Datchet Road, Thames Avenue and Thames Street.
