Anglian Water has confirmed that a burst water main on Bushmead Road in St Neots has caused “significant damage” to the road.
The water authority has said part of Bushmead Road (Postcode PE19 8BT), will be closed for one week to allow for repairs.
On August 25, residents in Eaton Socon, Eaton Ford and surrounding areas of St Neots were left with low pressured water or no water at all.
Anglian Water has apologised to residents for the inconvenience caused, but have announced, that due to the significant damage the burst water main has caused, the road will remain shut.
“There has been significant damage to the road so we don’t expect the road to reopen this week as we will need to repair and reinstate it.”
“Our engineers are classed as key workers and are continuing to do their jobs to find and fix problems like this and get things back to normal.
“Please don’t worry, they’re following the latest Government guidance and social distancing to keep you safe.
