City centre road to remain closed until Monday due to burst water main
Repairs to a burst water main causing traffic disruption in Bradford city centre are set to continue until Monday, according to Yorkshire Water.
The B6144 Westgate, in Bradford, has been closed to traffic since Sunday morning as contractors tackle the problem, which occured near the New Beehive Inn.
A spokesman for Yorkshire Water said: "The pipe should be fixed over the next couple of days, and engineers will be working hard over the weekend to reinstate the road, which we hope to be able to re-open on Monday. Further work will then be carried out on site to re-establish the footpath."
"We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this might be causing and reassure customers that we're working hard to complete the necessary repairs as soon as possible.”
