A main road in York that was closed after a water main burst is now back open.
Wigginton Road was shut by police last night at about 6.45pm due to water cascading across the surface, and remained closed this morning.
Officers said the leak was close to the railway level crossing. Buses had to be diverted away fro the road.
Yorkshire Water says it has now been fixed.
It was the latest in a series of water leaks on Wigginton Road.
Earlier this month, a major mains burst saw six schools closed and hundreds of homes and businesses left without water for several hours.
And another leak caused road closures and traffic problems in July.
After the last water main burst we asked Yorkshire Water if they were connected.
A spokesperson told us: ““They’re not linked – this one is further along Wiggington Road heading out of York – but clearly we will be looking closely at our network in the area.”
Meanwhile a separate water mains burst has flooded another York road.
Water is cascading along Penleys Grove Street, although it remains open to local traffic.
It came close to flooding residents’ homes. They have had to prop open manhole covers to keep water levels down.
These leaks come only hours after a major mains burst closed the A64 near York for many hours on Saturday.
A Yorkshire Water spokesperson told YorkMix: “Following freezing temperatures of the last few weeks, we now have a sudden change to a much milder weather.
“When temperatures fluctuate, as they have over the last few days, it causes the ground to move which can impact and damage our water pipes.
“We have seen more leaks and bursts as a result and have increased the number of colleagues we have out and about, so that we can fix any issues as quickly as possible.
“The issue on Wiggington Road was worked on overnight. It is now fixed, the road has been reinstated and is reopen.
“We have a team making their way to Penleys Grove Street, who will work to fix the leak as quickly as possible.
“We’d like to thank our customers for their patience as we deal with an increased number of leaks, linked to the sudden change in temperature.”
