Midhurst’s giant sinkhole has been fixed, 48 hours after it appeared in Bepton Road.
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.”
