United Utilities has completed a £6M tunnelling project which was undertaken after a sinkhole over 10m deep appeared in Manchester.
Part of the Mancunian Way collapsed last year after days of heavy rain. The collapse caused serious damage to a major sewer.
United Utilities undertook a £6M repair job which involved laying a new sewer at a depth of 15m.
The sewer repair has finished, and now the last stages of road drainage works are being carried out. Manchester City Council estimates the road above will be fully reopened by mid June.
United Utilities wastewater network strategy manager Tony Griffiths said: “We’re grateful to the public for their patience while we’ve carried out this incredibly challenging project. This has been the biggest emergency repair we have ever undertaken.”
