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

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.”
