Crews called to burst water main

Queen Charlton Lane, Keynsham

Our Control room received a call from police at 11:15, alerting us to a large water leak on Queen Charlton Lane near Keynsham.

Crews from Hicks Gate, Temple, Avonmouth, Portishead, Kingswood and Nailsea responded to the incident.

On arrival, crews found a significant water leak affecting multiple properties and the roadway at Queen Charlton Lane.

Crews worked alongside police and Bristol Water to create a dam across Charlton Lane using soil and hardcore. 

Pumping operations then took place, with crews working with Bristol Water to stem the flow of water which was causing the leak. 

The incident was left in the hands of Bristol Water.
