Water authority battles burst main on key highway

| 08/09/2014

(CNS): Although customers were not expected to be directly impacted by a burst water main on Monday, the Water Authority said traffic was being impacted as crews worked to find and mend the leak. The affected pipe is located at the intersection of Crewe Road and the Linford Pierson Highway and drivers were asked to take note of the emergency work and the closed lanes.  The two north bound lanes of Crewe Road from the Hurleys roundabout to Kings Sports Centre have been closed to accommodate the work. Traffic from the east was being diverted to Old Crew Rd via South Sound Road.

The Water authority said warning signs will be posted in the general vicinity and everyone on the road in the area was being asked to drive with caution.
“The Water Authority apologizes for any inconvenience caused and asks for the patience and understanding of the motoring public,” a spokesperson from the authority stated.

    The water main wasn't the problem for me. The total lack of police around to direct and explain why you couldn't get to Vehicle Licensing was incredible. No diversion signs, no one directing traffic, just the roundabouts blocked off. No one answered the phone at the traffic department or the main police reception number either!!!
