A spokesperson for Leicester Area Traffic Control (ATC) told Leicester Mercury:

“There have been lot’s of flash floods affecting roads across the city, county and Rutland this morning.”

The Environment Agency advise that just 30cm of flowing water is enough to move your car. Never drive through flood water.

Burst water main in Enderby causes morning rush hour problems

Leicester Lane closed to traffic
Leicester Lane was closed between Smith Way and the B4114 as Seven Trent staff worked on the burst water main

Just prior to rush hour this morning (Monday 17th August) a burst water pipe in the vicinity of Leicester Lane heading towards the Foxhunter Island caused flooding at the top end of the B4114 St John’s.

About 30 people in the LE8 and LE19 postcodes were reported to have been without any water supply.

Enderby Leisure Centre sent out text messages to members saying they hoped to be able to stay open during the day.

Severn Trent Water quickly had teams at the scene.

Leicester Lane, between Smith Way and the B4114 Narborough Road was closed off. This area covers the entrance to the Enderby Park and Ride but during the course of the morning buses were being allowed along the road. A diversion was set up via the Foxhunter Roundabout.

At 09.30am Severn Trent Water were saying the water supply had been restored to all homes affected by the morning’s burst main.

The firm said it had managed to use other pipes in the area to re-supply customers, although they may have experienced some low pressure.

Repairs were expected to continue into the evening.
