Norwich's Plumstead Road 'sinkhole' has been fixed and the road reopened to traffic in both directions.
The road had been closed since late January after a six-metre deep cavern was discovered in the middle of the road surface.
Repair works by Norwich City Council to fill the hole began on Wednesday last week, with the road reopened to traffic over the weekend.
The Plumstead Road incident was the latest in a series of holes and collapses around the city over the years – with the most famous being the 'bus in a hole' in Earlham Road in 1988.
