Local Andover News | Burst Water Pipe Closes Finkley Road | Andover & VillagesThe burst water pipe that stopped the supply to hundreds of homes across Andover has now been fixed by Southern Water.

However, the Andover end of the Finkley Road had to be completely dug up in order to repair the broken pipework, and is now completely closed to any through traffic. Southern Water are predicting that the road will be closed for some days.

Andover Advertising with Andover & VillagesA diversion is in place that reroutes traffic through Smannell and back around into Finkley itself.

The burst pipe affected the water supply to properties in the area on Wednesday morning (26th October 2016), and caused a flowing deep area of water across the Finkley Road.


Customers may still notice some discolouration or low pressure in their water supply at first, which is completely normal when there’s been a disruption to the supply and is only temporary.
