We’ve just had an update from the York Travel Twitter feed.

It says: “Yorkshire Water are dealing with multiple burst water mains in the area of the hospital please try and avoid the area if possible.”

Wigginton Road is said to be shut all the way to the ring road.

The AA reports: “Road closed due to water main work on B1363 Wigginton Road both ways between the Hospital and Haxby Road.”

Best to avoid the area if you can. We’ll update when we have more.
