A Sudbury resident has lamented the condition of a portion of road in Sudbury, left behind after recent repairs to deal with a leak.

Work was carried out in Quay Lane towards the end of last month, at the point adjoining the Cheyne Court residential area, following reports that water had been leaking into the road over a number of weeks.

A crew from Anglian Water attended the site to fix the problem, before resurfacing part of the brick-weave entrance to Cheyne Court, which had been partially dug up to facilitate the repairs.

But resident Stephen Thorpe described the end result as “appalling and an eyesore”, and believes it should be restored to the way it appeared before the work began.

“The brick paving has not been replaced,” said Mr Thorpe, a member of The Sudbury Society and a resident of Friars Street. “They have left very rough tarmac and it’s just a bit of a mess.”
