The deadline for work on a sinkhole-plagued road to be completed has been delayed again.

Boston Road South in Holbeach has been closed for months, with Lincolnshire County Council and Anglian Water investigating after a hole reappeared.

Last week, an Anglian Water spokesman said work to reline the sewer was due to be completed early this week.

However, the timeframe has been pushed back once more - with workers expected to finish this weekend.

A new statement said: “Our teams are continuing to work in Boston Road South to reline the sewer to ensure it continues to provide a resilient infrastructure to the local residents.

“We have no issues with the pipe itself, the relining is a complicated process and will take time to complete, this work is proactive maintenance work and not as a result of any sewer collapse.”

Staff at the site confirmed that their work was going as planned. It began in May.

Once work is completed, the county council will put in place its repair and rebuild strategy for the road.
