Burst water mains in King Street and Goldhawk Road, Shepherds Bush

Update 12noon Friday 23 February

King Street remains closed for emergency repair works

King Street in Hammersmith remains closed to traffic between Hammersmith Broadway and Bridge Avenue due to repairs to leaking underground water mains.

We’ve demanded that @ThamesWater works 24 hours a day to get the road re-opened. They tell us the work has slipped as they’ve found another small leak, which they’re going to fix while they have access to the pipe. They aim to complete the repairs by Tuesday (27 February) evening.

Goldhawk Road remains closed

Goldhawk Road remains closed following last month’s burst pipe. Work to repair the road is ongoing and Thames Water expects to complete it by 3 March.
