Work is underway to fix mismatched paving on St Botolph's Bridge which results in it flooding when it rains.

 

Highways officers are carrying out works to fix an issue which has caused flooding on one side of the new St Botolphs footbridge.

A county council spokesman said the problem occurred where the old surfaces met the new ones in a ‘tectonic plate’ style.

In effect it meant the old surface went under the new to create a dip where water gathered when it rained.

The spokesman said the work was hoped to be completed by the end of today (Thursday).

The £750,000 EU-funded bridge officially opened by the Mayor of Boston and children from Park Academy in March.

It was chosen by public vote from three designs including a traditional brick design.
