But the council’s Streets Ahead team said it was not possible for all of the work to be completed because of the heavy rain which led to ‘delayed works’.

A Streets Ahead spokesman said: “Sections of East Bank Road were completed but the road section on Gleadless Road is still outstanding. Apologies for the additional disruption - these works will be rescheduled as soon as possible.”
