According to the gentlemen digging the hole, there are leaks coming from pipes they didn’t even know existed. They explained to the Blog, “There are two gas mains on our map but there are four large gas pipes under here including a 24 inch gas main.”
They are hoping to have the leaks all fixed by the end of the week with the road hopefully put back to normal by Wednesday next week. Might be worth avoiding at rush hour in the meanwhile.
Update Monday 15th April
They're gone! The hole is filled in, the lights gone and the roads are clear. Ahead of schedule!
