I spoke with the gang dealing with the water leak in Connaught Road tonight on my way back from Brookwood Club in an attempt to understand the impact on Brookwood residents.
Essentially, the leak has now been fixed, and the loss of water stopped. This is good news, especially in this hot period.
The team responsible for reinstatement (basically filling in the hole) will either attend site on Saturday or Monday. It is unknown at this stage exactly when they will be on site.
If it is tomorrow, the road will be fully open by Monday, otherwise it will probably be on Tuesday.
I have witnessed vehicles driving on the pavement and the grass tonight to bypass the road closure and this is particularly irresponsible and simply unacceptable and has been reported to the police. It is a pain, but there is no reason to put people’s lives at risk to avoid going the long way round. My personal opinion of those doing this, unfortunately is unable to be published on this blog.
