A Fenland road that was flooded due to a burst water main remains shut.

The Twenty Foot Road between the A141 and Elm Road at March was closed yesterday afternoon (Tuesday).

Motorists are being advised to use alternative routes.

An Anglian Water spokesperson said: “Our teams have successfully repaired a burst water pipe on Twenty Foot Road in March. Water was re-routed through the network during the repair to ensure that all properties affected had their water supply returned.”

“A road closure is currently in place for the safety of our teams and local road users as repairs to the damaged road surface continue.”

The spokesperson added: “We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and we’d like to thank road users and residents for their patience while we complete these vital repairs.”

Writing on their Facebook page, Policing Fenland said: “Twenty Foot Road, March, closed between A141 and Elm Road due to a suspected burst water main. Please use alternative routes.”

Cants Drove in Murrow and Gull Drove in Guyhirn will be closed between June 11-12, with a section of the B1101 in Friday Bridge to be shut on June 13, both closures due to roadworks by Anglian Water.
