Northwick Park – burst water main

16 January 2018

Firefighters attended a burst water main which has flooded on Watford Road in Northwick Park this morning.

The 18 inch main flooded the road to a depth of a foot and covered an area of around 100 metres. Watford Road was closed in both directions from Northwick Park roundabout to John Line roundabout.

London Fire Brigade spokesperson said:

“Fire crews are working with the police to minimise the impact of the flooding. The closure of the road has caused traffic issues in the local area. If you are travelling to Northwick Park Hospital this morning, please allow extra time as journeys will take longer than usual.”

The Brigade was called at 0722 and the incident was over for our crews 0916. Four fire engines and 20 firefighters from Wembley, Stanmore and Harrow fire stations were at the scene.
