Update: King’s Lynn watermain - repairs due to finish Thursday
Drivers stuck as water main and traffic lights hit commuters
Temporary traffic lights will remain on King's Lynn's Edward Benefer Way until Thursday after a water main burst at the weekend.
Specialist equipment was brought into Lynn on Monday to repair the pipe, on a main route into the town. The repair has been completed but the road needs repairs and resurfacing which will not be finished until Thursday afternoon.
The 12-inch pipe ruptured at around 5am on Saturday and supplies were immediately re-routed to customers who should not have been affected by the burst.
A spokesman said the pipe had been 3 metres down which is why special equipment was needed to get to it.
Traffic was gridlocked Monday morning as drivers made there way into town during the morning rush.
with traffic queuing back towards the Woottons.
