The road closed 10 days ago after heavy rainfall, with the B1040 between Whittlesey and Thorney being closed soon afterwards.

With temporary traffic lights also being used on the A605 between Peterborough and Whittlesey, it has made travelling between the two places a nightmare for motorists.

However, the Environment Agency has not only ended the North Bank flood warning, but said it expects to follow suit at the B1040 shortly, allowing drivers more travel options.
