Burst water main: major Yarmouth bus route dug up for permanent road repair

WORKMEN have dug up a major bus route in Great Yarmouth after a water main which burst last month, spraying water into the air.

The incident happened in one of the resort's busiest shopping streets, at the junction of King Street with Regent Street, on Saturday, June 23.

The leak was stemmed on the day of the incident, and this morning (Monday, July 2) contractors for Essex & Suffolk Water dug up the street to repair the road permanently.

A spokesman for Essex & Suffolk Water said: 'We're carrying out permanent repairs and resurfacing on the road following the recent burst.

'We're scheduled to have it finished by the end of Wednesday.'
