Thames Street - Burst water main

  • There's a massive mains leak in Thames Street, which explains the low pressure in town. Traffic diverted.
  • Traffic diverted around centre of town. 2 way in Market Street. Avoid if possible.
  • Thames Water engineers in Thames Street tell me that it may be "several hours" before water is restored to the area of Thames Street and Pound Hill
  • Charlbury School is closed and pre-school/nursery providers may also be closed.
  • “They are not expecting it to be fixed until the small hours of the night (lots of us have zero water rather than low pressure) - they have been handing out bottles of water from Thames Street. Consider checking on your elderly neighbours.”
