Following a water main burst on Hayes Lane on the 11th May Councillors Andrew Lee and Thomas Turrell visited residents on the street to ensure they were not flooded and still had power/ water supply.
Councillor Lee and Turrell also worked with Council Officers to ensure the street was re-opened promptly. Following feedback from residents, Councillor Turrell also worked to ensure the diversion route of local traffic was amended to reduce disruption on the surrounding roads.
Along with Councillor Alexa Michael, Councillors Lee and Turrell will be writing to Thames Water to raise concern about the number of leaks on Hayes Lane in recent years.
Councillor Turrell said:
“We are very grateful to the London Fire Brigade for their swift response to the burst in May. Only a handful of residents were affected by the burst, and we are working to support those who were. However, it is clear that there are some factors are contributing to the amount of bursts on this section of pipe in recent years and we will be working to see how we can prevent future bursts”.Note: This article was published on the 5th June but was backdated as it related to a event a few weeks earlier. As such the backdating was to avoid giving the impression of a second burst.
