CONTRACTORS have returned to a busy Scarborough road to carry out work to repair a collapsed sewer.

The work, in Dean Road, began on Monday and will be completed on Friday by Mott MacDonald Bentley on behalf of Yorkshire Water.

It involves a section of the road being closed near to its junction with Wrea Lane.

Work to repair the collapse sewer was carried out less than four months ago after the damage was discovered by an underground camera.

Workers widened a manhole so that a new lining could be brought into the sewer and installed. Had the sewer collapsed further it could have taken six months to fully replace.

Richard Sears, Yorkshire Water’s community engagement manager, had written to nearby residents to inform them of the disruption.

Residents and businesses were warned back in May that a further road closure would also be required in September.
