Burst water main leads to road closure

A burst water main has led to the partial closure of Cold Ash Hill this morning (Friday).

The road is closed between Southend and Hatchgate Close.

Thames Water engineers are at the scene and diversions are in place.

A spokesman for Thames Water, Miles Evans, said: “We’re sorry for the disruption our road closure on Cold Ash Hill is causing.

“This is necessary to allow us to safely carry out an emergency repair following a burst water main.

“Our team are on site, working to get this repair completed as quickly as possible.”

    There has been a leak there for the last couple of months that someone from Thames Water should have seen. This morning at 07.00 there was a hole but not a workman in sight!

    The workmen have dug up the road and sitting around waiting to get permission to fix the leak! Ridiculous! With Ashmore Green also closed it's a nightmare to get anywhere. looking at the site, only one lane needed to be closed!
