Affinity Water Issues Update on Water Main Repair in High Street, Wealdstone, and Bishop Ken Road

“Water has been restored. All customers should have water, although some may experience lower pressure than normal. If you live in a flat or have a shared water supply, you’re more likely to be affected by lower pressure.” said Affinity Water in a recent update.

“What we’re doing: Two water mains have burst on Wealdstone High Street and Bishop Ken Road. We’ve closed Wealdstone High Street while our team work safely on the repair. A traffic diversion is currently in place. Unfortunately, this is a difficult repair, and the road is likely to be closed for a few days. We’re sorry for the disruption this may cause.” added the update.

In light of these developments, it is evident that Affinity Water has made progress in restoring water supply to affected customers. However, some individuals may still experience lower water pressure, especially those residing in flats or with shared water connections.

The rupture of two water mains along Wealdstone High Street and Bishop Ken Road prompted the closure of Wealdstone High Street to ensure the safety of the repair crew. As a temporary solution, a traffic diversion has been implemented. Regrettably, due to the complexity of the repair, the road is anticipated to remain closed for a few days.

Affinity Water has taken proactive measures by directly contacting individuals registered under their Priority Services Register. These customers have been informed about the availability of bottled water to address their immediate needs throughout the repair period.

Affinity Water is actively engaged in resolving the issue and restoring normal water pressure to all customers. They appreciate the patience and understanding demonstrated by the community while essential repair work is underway. Further updates will be provided as progress is made and the situation unfolds.
