Road closures remain in place today, Tuesday, after a mains water pipe burst and flooded surrounding roads.

From as early as 5am yesterday morning, Monday, residents reported scenes of floods affecting residential streets across Timperley.

Commuters and residents were affected on Wellington Road and Stockport Road for most of the day after a mains water pipe burst and caused disruption by flooding the surrounding areas.

United Utilities said engineers were called out to the scene to turn off the burst pipe while Trafford Council worked to clear highway drains.

However, disruption remains likely for most of the day as temporary traffic lights have been set up on Wellington Road.

Thorley Lane leading into Timperley also remains closed while engineers continue to deal with the incident.

Yesterday, United Utilities confirmed a large water main had burst at the junction of Wellington Road and Stockport Road at Timperley, flooding the area.

The spokesperson said: “Our engineers have turned off the burst main and the water is now draining away, and Trafford Council has been supporting this with gulley cleaners to clear the highway drains. 

“We are using our water tankers to help maintain supplies to customers while our engineers continue with work to repair the burst pipe."

In an update today, Tuesday, United Utilities said engineers are still on the site repairing the main.

"To ensure customers in the area have water, we are continuing to use our tankers to pump water directly into the network. 

"During peak times some customers may notice fluctuations to their pressure. 

"We’re very sorry for the disruption caused and we thank customers and motorists for their patience", the spokesperson added.

Trafford Council has been approached for comment.
