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.”
