Disruption following burst water main

Last updated:

A water main has burst this moriing (Sunday 3 May) at the main junction of Prescot Road/Debry Lane/St Oswald’s Street.

This has resulted in the full closure of Prescot Road in both directions between Broad Green Road and Derby Lane.

Road closures are currently in place at the following locations:

  • Prescot Road at Green Lane (eastbound)
  • Prescot Road at Broad Green Road (westbound)
  • St Oswald’s Street at the Tesco Superstore junction (northbound)
  • Derby Lane at Brookland Road West (southbound)

United Utilities is currently on site and a repair is underway. The clean up operation will begin as soon as possible.

It is estimated that the road could be closed for a minimum of seven days, however, this is subject to change and the full extent will be know once United utilities has carried out an investigation on site.
