Thames Water is correcting a fault which occurred when they were fixing a burst water main, whilst there are also other roadworks taking place

The fault happened on Friday, November 18 morning on Dorcan Way by the Piccadilly Roundabout.

There was more traffic chaos on November 11 as the section of the Greenbridge roundabout between Dorcan Way and Drakes Way turnings were coned off to all traffic whilst work took place.

This was to allow Thames Water to complete utility repairs and maintenance.

The latest traffic has been backing up all week, especially during rush hours.
