Leicestershire County Council Highways agreed to an emergency Temporary Traffic Regulation Order at Wicklow Avenue to allow the work to be carried out safely.
Severn Trent said it has now finished the work and hopes the road can be reopened later today (Friday).
A spokesperson said: “We’re sorry to customers on Wicklow Avenue, who’ve been affected by a damaged sewer pipe recently.
“We’re pleased to say the repair has been done and we’re aiming to return the road back to normal today.
“At that point, we’ll be able to lift any traffic restrictions. We’re sorry again for any disruption this has caused.”
A suggested alternative diversion route for motorists is via Grange Drive, Baldock’s Lane and Burton Road, and vice versa.
