Braintree: Road remains closed after water main bursts
12:40pm Monday 12th August 2013 in News
A town centre road remains closed after a water main burst on Friday evening.
Traffic has been unable to pass through London Road, in Braintree, while repair work takes place.
An Anglian Water spokesman said: "The damage to the main itself was relatively standard, but it caused more damage to the road.
"The hole itself is being filled today and there will be an inspection later today to check the status of the road before the top layer of asphalt is laid.
"It should be open again tomorrow."
Traffic and bus services have been affected by diversions while the road is closed.
