A KIDDERMINSTER street is likely to remain closed until the weekend after a large water pipe burst, Severn Trent has said.

The company has fixed the water main on Green Street, which burst on Saturday morning (December 16), but is still working to repair the road surface.

Thousands of residents in the town were hit with water supply problems on the weekend, with some losing their supply completely.

Severn Trent said they supplied bottled water to local care homes and vulnerable customers on their Priority Services Register.

Water from the burst pipe also flooded the road and the car parks at Aldi and Farmfoods on Saturday. 

Today (Monday, December 18), Severn Trent provided an update on the works to resolve the issue.

A Severn Trent spokesperson said: “Our teams have completed the repair to the burst main on Green Street and we’ve started the works to reinstate the road surface.

"Unfortunately, there is damage to the footway, road surface and kerb lines so we will need to work on quite a large area and it’s likely that the road will remain closed probably until next weekend.

“We understand that Green Street is a busy route through the town, and we’re working hard to minimise disruption and have this work completed as quickly and safely as we can.

"We’re very sorry for any inconvenience while we make this important repair”.
