Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) say they still cannot provide an estimated re-opening date for one of Chester's busiest thoroughfares.
The B5130 Sandy Lane in Great Boughton had to be closed for safety reasons on Thursday, March 31 due to 'an unsafe excavation by a developer' next to the road, and emergency repairs were carried out to assess the damage.
Traffic has since been diverted using Gorse Way, Caldy Valley Road and the A5115 Christleton Road while work to repair the road and footway takes place but CWaC say there is still no estimated date for this work to be completed.
Councillor Brian Clarke, Cabinet member for economic development and infrastructure, said: “For safety reasons it has been necessary to close the B5130 Sandy Lane Chester, close to the junction with Stocks Lane.
"This is to enable emergency repair works to a large sewer which also includes repairs to the road and footway within the immediate vicinity. These works will be undertaken during the day once a suitable design and method has been agreed.
"To keep the sewer working it is necessary to over pump the sewer along the road from one man hole to another."
Cllr Clarke added: "We are working closely with other agencies to get the works completed as quickly as possible and to keep disruption to a minimum. We will provide updates as soon as we have them.
"We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused and would like to assure you that every effort will be made to complete the works as soon as possible. At present we don’t have an estimate for completion of the work."
