Problems Associated with Burst Water Main on A418
UPDATE — Monday 19th June
The road works to repair the burst water main and resurface the road have now been completed, and Churchway has re-opened today, Monday 19th June 2017
On Wednesday 14th June an 8" water main burst on the A418 at Kings Cross, at the junction with Churchway. The damage to the road surface necessitates renewal down to a depth of some five inches.
Thames Water has issued the following statement:
"We are sorry to those affected by the burst water main on Aylesbury Road, Haddenham. We have repaired the damaged section of pipe and water supply returned to normal on Wednesday evening. The burst caused damage to the road surface, and we have had to temporarily close the road to repair it. We expect to be finished by Monday morning 19th June."
As far as is known any customers who had lost their water supply had been reconnected by Thursday morning 15th June. It is understood that for a very short time the water may be brownish, but that it will still be quite safe to drink. Thames Water's telephone number is 0800 980 8800.
Transport for Bucks has said that the "temporary closure of the road" affects the A418 near Kings Cross where "two-way" traffic lights are in operation on the A418: peak hour traffic has been considerably delayed.
Also Churchway is closed (except for access) from the Banks Road crossroads up to the A418 at Kings Cross. TfB say that both restrictions could possibly remain in place until next week. So you may need to go via Pegasus Way, or via the Lower Road and Dinton, to reach a section of the A418 at present.
Arriva have advised that the 280/X8 route is considerably affected. Buses will not be stopping at some stops in Stone and Dinton, and leaving Stone and travelling via the Lower Road to reach Haddenham. In the village the stops at Rudds Lane and Stanbridge Road (including the Medical Centre) will not be served.
