Drivers facing more misery after second water main bursts

Drivers are facing lengthy delays once again as the entry and exit slip road on the A1 remains shut to carry out repairs after a burst water main.

The slip roads were briefly re-opened last night but Highways East have confirmed that motorists cannot leave or enter the A1 southbound at Rowley Lane.

Hertfordshire County Council's website suggests that the road closure will stay in place until Thursday as Affinity Water carry out repairs.

Borehamwood Times:

The closure has caused chaos so far this week with local routes affected badly including all roads into Stirling Corner such as Furzehill Road, A411, and Barnet Road and Stirling Way.

Latest pictures show a huge crater in the road which has been dug up so that workers can repair the burst water main.
