And another leak on corner of Kemble Road and Stansted. Been gushing for 3+ week

There is now green algae and the road surface is breaking up, with a massive pothole forming near the Colfe Road Bus Stop.

It's been reported, but no action so far.

No water Ewelme or surrounds since about 3am- you would think theyd turn it on for the Monday morning rush hour/schools etc?

Coincidentally Conway were digging up honor oak road most of yesterday. And you know what happened when they 'resurfaced' Honor Oak Park last year.....

Here in Honor Oak Rd, London Rd end the water has been very unpredictable last few days, it's gone off again in the last hour.

Never known it this bad before.

As I was walking along Dartmouth Road this morning, it looked like the main had sprung a leak, down near Bunka and water was coming through the tarmac. Is it still leaking?

Thames Water has been investigating the leak on Dartmouth Road near Boots today, so expect the stream to stop soon!

Water leak on corner of Kemble Road and Stansted has now been gushing for 6 weeks.

What was green algae three weeks ago has now turned to slime - a real slip hazard. The road surface is breaking up, with a temporary patch having broken up as well.

There is a massive pothole forming near the Colfe Road Bus Stop.

It'a been reported many times.

Any local councillors or MP's care to jump on this? Cursing

Yes.
The pipes are at least 100 years old!
They are probably rusting away.
