Burst water pipe affects residents, businesses in central areas

Water supply in central areas were affected on Tuesday evening due to a burst water pipe along River Valley Road.

The leak, on a 0.7-metre diameter water pipe near Clemenceau Avenue, was reported at about 8pm.

National water agency PUB said the pipe was located within the Downtown Line 3 Fort Canning Station construction worksite.

As a result of the leak, water flowed onto the River Valley Road.

Residents and businesses in the central areas such as Race Course Road, Towner Road, Owen Road and Bukit Purmei Road were without water supply or experienced low pressure due to the heavy draw-off from the leak.

PUB said its officers completed the isolation of the leak two hours later, at 10pm.

PUB is investigating the cause of the leak.
