Works continuing after water pipe bursts in Wrexham for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Many residents across Wrexham are waking up this morning to find low pressure affecting their water supplies.

The water company say the issue was caused by a burst water pipe on Chester Road, near the A483.

In a statement just after 3:20 am Hafren Dyfrdwy said that as a result some customers in the LL12 area are “waking up to find their water supplies to be off or a lower water pressure than normal.”

Work has been carried out at the site and it has since been confirmed that “all customers should now have their water supplies restored.”

Just before 6am Hafren Dyfrdwy said: “Our teams are still working on the burst pipe on Chester Road, A483, and some customers may be experiencing lower pressure than normal, until the repairs are completed.

“We appreciate your patience during this time.”

Thanks to Keith for the top image from the Gresford roundabout earlier this morning showing the scale of the leak.

As a result of the incident there is traffic jams on the A483
