mains - water supplies (pic by kitto)

Hundreds of Nantwich homes have been without water or suffered low pressure all day due to a leaking mains.

United Utilities engineers have been repairing the burst which they say was on Winsford Road bypass A51 junction.

Four water-on-wheels vehicles were sent there to pump water directly into the mains.

“Most customers should have water although this may be at a reduced pressure,” said a United Utilities spokesperson.

“We are aware some of you are still experiencing no water and we are working as hard as we can to restore your supply.”

Repairs got underway at lunchtime today (January 13) and engineers have been onsite since midday.

    Hope this will soon be fixed and that our water will be drinkable!

    Have looked on the Map and can’t see where Winsford Road goes anywhere near the A51! Which bypass were you referring to, please?
