This was emailed to me today:
"It has now
been confirmed that there is a leaking water main in the middle of the A605
between Kings Dyke Level Crossing and the Water Tower at Whittlesey. The
main is approx 2.5 to 3 mts deep and Anglia Water have no alternative but to
close the road to carryout the excavation and make the repair.
there is water coming up to the road surface, which AWA are monitoring and are
happy at present to go in after the morning rush on Saturday and then work
continuously until it is repair which they believe will take until at least
Sunday afternoon. They are having to monitor the weather as if there is a
freeze they will have to go in sooner due to the danger.
with be either via the North Bank or Pondersbridge from Whittlesey. Signing
advising motorists of the impending closure are due to go up shortly."
