“We will provide another update once the sewage line at Point Finger Road has been repaired,” the statement concluded.

Update 9.37pm: A spokesperson for the City said, “The sewage pipe at Point Finger Road has been repaired. The pipe will remain exposed overnight to ensure no further work is required. The road will be repaved tomorrow and the area returned to normal. Motorists are reminded to continue to use caution while traveling in the area of Point Finger Road.”
