A flooded Swindon road that closed to traffic for more than 24 hours has reopened.

A burst water main made Whitehill Way inaccessible for most of Monday. Police and Swindon Borough Council closed the B4534 at around 6.30am on June 17.

By 7pm, most of the water had been drained away but the area remained unsafe for traffic to use.

At the time, a Thames Water spokesperson said: "We are very sorry to local residents and motorists for any disruption caused while we carry out this necessary repair work. 

“Our teams have isolated this section of pipe to keep the taps flowing for our customers and all properties should have supply but may experience slightly lower pressure.”

The closure affecting Whitehill Way from the Tewkesbury Way and Freshbrook sides as well as the right turn off Gainsborough Way and left turn off Grange Park Way continued into Monday night and Tuesday morning.

At around 12.45pm on June 18, the local authority confirmed that most of this section of West Swindon was now clear.

A spokesperson said: "Whitehill Way has reopened to traffic in both directions following a water main burst.

"One lane of Grange Park Way, towards Whitehill Way, is still closed while Thames Water continue repair works."
