Lengthy road repairs continue in Kingston

Emergency repair works to a large water main under the carriageway in Wood Street, Kingston Town Centre are still under way.<--break->“></p>

<p>Drivers faced further delays after a burst main caused considerable structural damage to the Kingston hill highway.</p>

<p>Thames Water remained committed to the original timeline of construction, reopening both lanes on Wood Street late on Sunday, March 11 before Monday’s rush hour traffic.</p>

<p>But it is reported that there are still some problems with the actual repairs to the main itself, which have delayed reinstatement of the highway.</p>

<p>The Kingston Hill area still faces severe delays, even though the damaged main is now repaired, the carriageway still needs major repairs.</p>

<p>Further disruption was caused after a 100ft lorry became jammed trying to turn a corner at 8pm on Monday, March 5.</p>

<p>Travellers are still advised to check travel updates on websites and local radio if they travel into Kingston.</p>

<p>This is not the first time Kingston travellers face traffic disruption due to underground pipe bursts.</p>

<p>In January 2011, Thames Water engineers spent two months repairing the damage.</p>

<p>Bus routes are still on diversion.</p>
