Burst water main closes road


A Queenstown road has been closed due to a burst water main.

The section of Isle Street, between Brecon St and Hay St, is subsiding.

“We are closing the road for safety reasons,” council coms boss Michele Poole.

“Properties in that block will have their access affected.

“The preliminary assessment is that they will not be able to drive in and out of their properties due to the state of the road.”

Properties on Isle St and also Hay St will have no water while repairs are carried out – estimated to take three hours.

Queenstown Medical Centre’s not affected by either access or water issues.
