Work to fix a burst water main on Little Horton Lane is set to last until next week, Bradford Council has said. 

The popular road is currently closed in both directions between Southfield Road and Canterbury Avenue.

The authority has urged drivers to find alternative routes and avoid the road, especially at peak times.

Here's everything you need to know about the burst water main, how long work will last and the full list of road diversions and closures in place.

Road diversions and lane closures

A spokesperson for Bradford Council said: “Due to a burst water main outside 729 Little Horton Lane we have lane closures and a diversion in place.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

“All traffic turning from Southfield Road/Lane onto Little Horton Lane has been diverted up Canterbury Avenue, Horton Park Avenue and Little Horton Lane. Traffic leaving Canterbury Avenue is unable to turn left onto Little Horton Lane and has been diverted right onto Little Horton Lane, Hudson Avenue, Great Horton Road and Horton Park Avenue."

Temporary two-way traffic lights have also been set up on Southfield Lane due to some consequential damage.

The lights will be in operation between 7am and 7pm daily.

The spokesperson added: "We encourage people to avoid the area if possible and find alternative routes, especially at peak times when heavy traffic is expected."

When will work be completed?

The works are currently estimated to be completed by July 11, however Yorkshire Water is being asked to complete them as soon as possible.

“We appreciate this will be inconvenient for many thank them for their understanding," the council spokesperson said.
