One lane is closed on the southbound carriageway between Maskew Avenue and Tavernvers Road and may remain closed into the weekend.

Anglian Water is currently deploying a vacuum excavator next to Bourges Boulevard, Peterborough to fix a water main and the lane closure is to ensure the safety of the public and Anglian Water staff.

Nik Shelton from Anglian Water said the main burst yesterday and the vacuum extractor is being used to remove the soil so engineers can access the main.

He added: "We've had to close one lane of Bourges Boulevard so there may be a small amount of traffic disruption and we'd like to thank everyone for bearing with us, but it's a complicated repair and we're hoping to get this fixed by the end of day tomorrow - Friday, however it is complicated so it may go into the weekend."
