Road closed

I see that the road closure crept into Monday morning luckily I go past before all the school traffic - I guess there was a bit of choas, as there didn't appear to be many signs until you were at the closure. Is it all finished now - not sure what they were doing - certainly a big hole was dug!

I also see that Waitrose are still having problem with water leaks in the car park, and water everywhere a couple of weeks back and clearly holes dug once again. Is it just that the infrastructure under there is so old that it keeps breaking?

As I understand it, there were quite deep cellars under the Car park at Waitrose, left over from the old breweries that stood on the site.
Maybe they did not fill-in quite as well as they thought when building over the site thereby problems now being experienced. :AA
