Workers replace the broken clamp on the Bell Street water main.

Just two weeks after a water main was repaired, the same pipe sprung another leak. Properties along Bell Street were left without running water and the south side of the street was blocked off, in front of the Bell Pub, to enable a digger to excavate around the pipes.

South side of Bell Street was dug up to get to the leaking mains supply.

A workman on the site said that a clamp fitted to the original break was not secured properly and a new clamp had to be put in its place. Crews were working late into the night to make the necessary repairs.

Beer supplies in the Bell pub were not affected. 🙂
