YORKSHIRE Water has apologised over prolonged roadworks in the Colne Valley.
The Balfour Beatty firm was appointed several weeks ago to replace a water main in Station Lane, Golcar, on behalf of the utility company.
But the work hit problems after complications.
Jane Eidson, 41, of Station Lane, said: "They started before Easter and it is still going on.
"It's a one-way street but at the moment it's a no-go road. They are digging it up in patches. It is terrible getting in and out of where we live."
Miss Eidson added that she had not received any notification that the work was going to take place.
She said: "At the moment the road is an accident waiting to happen as you have to weave your way through the roadworks.
"We are not too bad as we have a parking area. But the residents who park on the road have nowhere to park and just abandon cars where they can."
A Yorkshire Water spokeswoman said the work was due to finish last night.
She said: "We apologise to customers in the area for any inconvenience while we carried out this work to replace the main in Station Lane.
"This was a vital scheme to reduce the chances of bursts taking place.
"The work did take longer than we anticipated as we had to dig the pipe out by hand because of the nature of the road.
"All our customers on the lane then had to be transferred over to be served from the new pipe.
"This work also had to be dug by hand."
