Another Thames Water update

There has been another burst water main under Thurlow Park Road which is now being repaired. 

Thames Water have said that they’ll be working day and night this weekend to complete the repair. They will need to dig through thick concrete to get to the pipe, so this will add to the time the work will take, and expect to continue into the start of next week but will do everything we can to get the road reopen as soon as possible.

Local residents should not expect to see an interruption of water supplies, however there is a small chance some properties may have lower water pressure than normal. Thames Water engineers will be managing water flows in the area to reduce the risk of low pressure as much as possible.

Consequently, there will be a traffic diversion in place as the road has been closed westbound between Croxted Road and Gallery Road. The diversion is via College Road, Burbage Road, Turney Road and Croxted Road. This will remain in place over the weekend and into the start of next week while the pipe is fixed. A separate diversion route for heavy goods vehicles will be signposted.
