Flooding on the A46 between Alcester and Stratford at Billesley caused by burst water pipe

SEVERN TRENT has apologised for a burst water pipe in a field near to the A46 approach to Stratford from Alcester which caused traffic congestion this morning (Thursday).

A spokesperson said: “We were made aware of the burst at 9am this morning and we currently have teams on site trying to isolate the pipe and stop the water escaping into the field and road.

“We’re in the process of putting in two-way traffic lights on the A46 to keep Severn Trent engineers and other road users safe as we carry out the repair.

“Once again we apologise for any disruption caused by this burst, and it’s our priority to repair the pipe and remove traffic management in place as soon as possible.”

Warwickshire Police said that at 8.54am they received reports of water spilling down the road close to Drayton Manor Drive at Billesley.

One motorist told the Herald that they could see a significant amount of water gushing out from the verge and onto the road, causing significant flooding on the southbound side.

The police said that two telegraph poles were also down and that the highways authority had been called to help clear the road.
