Following a burst water pipe on a section of Mold Road by Gwersyllt , a team from Hafren Dyfrdwy is on site to make a repair.

The issue occurred in the early hours of this morning near the main roundabout in Gwersyllt, with vehicles getting stuck in the flood water around rush hour.

They say due to flooding on the road creating “dangerous driving conditions”, Mold Road is temporarily closed while our engineers work to clear the water. Once this has been completed and the road is safe, it will be reopened although with some traffic management in place to allow our teams to complete the repair to the pipe.

A Hafren Dyfrdwy spokesperson said: “We have a team at Mold Road near Wrexham this morning making emergency repairs to a burst water pipe. Due to flooding as a result of the burst, which poses a safety risk to drivers, the road is currently closed while we clear this flood water.

“Once safe to do so, the road will be reopened with some traffic management while we complete the repair. We’re sorry for any inconvenience and will be working hard to get this repair made and everything back to normal as quickly as possible.”
