Major water main burst in Johnsonville
Major water main burst in Johnsonville, Wellington - cutting water supply for several hours
There’s been a major water main burst in Broderick Road, Johnsonville, in the past hour. Unfortunately the burst has tripped a shut-off valve at a local reservoir so there is either no water or low water pressure to much of Johnsonville and also parts of Broadmeadows and Paparangi. It may take up to nine hours to get water back on.
Crews are working to fix the break – and motorists are urged to avoid Broderick Road between Johnsonville Road and Moorefield Road due to traffic congestion as westbound traffic will be reduced to one lane while the burst is repaired.
