Work should be complete Wednesday: Severn Trent

Severn Trent says that Red Bank should be back to normal by Thursday at the latest after more disruption caused by its ailing pipe network overnight.

On Monday, large parts of Borfa Green and surrounding streets woke up to dry taps, with a big burst reported close to the garages (pictured).

Engineers responded immediately, but there was confusion caused by diversion signs sending motorists back towards the closed road.

And it is believed that in order to restore the supply yesterday, pressure increased on other parts of the network resulting in a further pipe going pop and sending a torrent of water down Red Bank, which is now also closed.

“The work should be completed by Wednesday,” said a spokesperson, who also apologised for the confusion caused by the diversion signs.

Last year Severn Trent announced it was carrying out a lot of work to Welshpool's pipe network which is in need of a upgrade.
