MOTORISTS are being warned of potential traffic delays in Huntingdon at the end of the month.

Anglian Water, based in Huntingdon, will be closing one side of the road in Ermine Street, opposite Richardson’s Cycles, to repair a collapsed main sewer pipe.

The work is expected to start on July 29 and end on August 9 with traffic lights set up to cope with the queues.

An Anglian Water spokesman said: “We are sorry for any delays this may cause. We will try to keep disruption to a minimum.

“It’s important we repair this as soon as we find the best time to do the work.”

A sign on the slip road from Huntingdon ring road says the work will start on Sunday (July 14) – Anglian Water is investigating why.
