Lab tests to discover what is moving under Sidmouth’s Triangle have now been carried out.
The results are expected to be ready in the early New Year.
The Herald previously reported on the super-sized pothole which appeared next to the Three Cornered Plot a couple of months ago.
Despite attempts to fill the pothole, it came back bigger than ever and in November measured in at two metres by one metre, with a depth of 10 centimetres at its centre.
While Highways wait for the results, a temporary repair will be carried out, until a permanent solution can be found.

He said: “We have done works on that road before. We believe there is something moving under there.
