Thames Water has provided a date it hopes to fully reopen a road shut by a burst water main.

Grange Park Way was flooded on Monday after a burst pipe but Whitehall Way has since reopened.

It is the latest in a series of burst Thames Water pipes that have closed Thamesdown Drive in May, Great Western Way and Mead Way in March.

Thames Water says its staff hope to complete repairs on Wednesday afternoon (June 19), and apologised for ongoing disruption.

A Thames Water spokesperson said: “We have now opened Whitehall Way in Swindon, following a burst water mains pipe on Grange Park Way.

“Grange Park Way remains closed to traffic joining from Sudeley Way, as motorists exit the roundabout. Our engineers continue to complete the necessary repairs and road reinstatement and expect to complete the work tomorrow afternoon.  

“We are very sorry to local residents and motorists for any disruption caused while we carry out this repair. All customers should have water supply but may experience slightly lower pressure.” 

Swindon Borough Council announced the road closure around 6.30am on MLnday morning (June 17). 

Although the council said that most of the water had been drained away, it said the road remained “impassable” in places.
