Littlewick Road closed till next week

Littlewick Rd Woking burst main

10:12am 12th January 2018

A road in Woking is closed until Tuesday (January 16) after it was flooded when a water main burst yesterday.

It happened in the early hours of the morning in Littlewick Road, near Goldsworth Park. 

It was the second time in 11 months that the pipe had burst.

Residents called Surrey Fire and Rescue Service before 5am - with one fire engine from Woking sent to help pump water away from ten flooded properties.

Affinity Water said the burst affected properties in the postcode areas GU21, GU3 and GU24.

The company has now fixed the burst main, but the road remains shut until next week.

It has offered to help residents with damage incurred. A spokesperson said in a statement:  "The burst in Littlewick Road occurred approximately 40 metres away from a previous burst in the area in February 2017.

“If our customers are flooded as a result of one of our water mains bursting, we will do all that we can to help with the immediate clear up.

“We will also ensure customers properties are restored to their previous condition before the incident occurred.”

Affinity has also advised customers that the water could be discoloured temporarily: "Should you experience any discoloured or aerated water which is not uncommon following a mains interruption, we recommend that you leave a mains fed tap running for approximately 5-10 minutes. Discolouration of the water is caused by small particles of iron which are within the mains and disturbed during interruptions.

2Cloudy water is caused by air that becomes trapped in the mains, neither of these are harmful to your health. To see more about how to clear discoloured or aerated water why not watch our short video guide here."

It said it was working with the Highways Agency to repair the road: "Where it has been necessary to excavate the area we will continue to work with the local Highways Authority to return the road surface area to normal and ensure that the road or footway is safe for all vehicle and pedestrian traffic. This may mean that we have to maintain the site and any necessary traffic management until this is the case."

A diversion is in place until the road reopens next week.
