Work in progress yesterday (10-05-18) after the sinkhole was filled with concrete.

Southern Water has confirmed it had finished work to fill the two-metre wide crater with concrete before it was resurfaced today.

Addressing residents at last night’s annual town meeting, town council chairman Mark Purves said the emergency road closure had given a feel for the roadworks set to be carried out in Rumbolds Hill in June.

He said: “Bepton Road has given us a little bit of a sample of what we might be experiencing in June, hopefully to sort [Rumbolds Hill] once and for all.

“Unfortunately we might need to suck it a little to get the result we need.”
