      Water burst causes disruption in Northampton

      UPDATE: The water main in Northampton has now been repaired and reinstated. Water supplies to properties will be back to normal shortly. The tap water may initially appear cloudy; this is due to air bubbles in the water, which are so small the water may appear white. This is completely normal after a burst main.

      If you simply run the tap for a short time then this should clear. Any water that you run can be collected and used for watering plants or washing up. If your water remains cloudy please contact 03457 145 145.

      Unfortunately some traffic disruption will continue tonight and tomorrow on the A5076 Mereway and possibly connecting roads as one lane in each direction remains closed whilst our teams work to repair the road surface. We expect the road to be re-opened by Wednesday morning.

      An Anglian Water spokesperson said: “We would like to thank customers for their patience whilst we completed the repair.”


      There will be traffic disruption in Northampton as engineers work to repair a burst water main in the town and the affected road.
