Today a spokesman for Anglian Water said: “Following on from the burst water main on Bourges Boulevard in Peterborough earlier this week, we are delighted to announce that work to repair the road surface has now finished and we anticipate the road to be re-opened early this evening.

“Our teams have been working around the clock to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we’re delighted to have completed this repair ahead of schedule.
