Brno, Jun 24 (BD) – At around 3am yesterday morning, a burst water main caused disruption to traffic and water supply on Brno’s Kotlářská.
The incident left 13 houses without mains water supply. A replacement supply was provided via a tank placed in front of the property at Kotlářská 53. Traffic was also disrupted due to the incident, with one lane of the street closed in the direction of Konečného náměstí.
Brno Waterworks and Sewerage are currently working to repair the water main. They have located the source of the problem and excavation work is now underway. However, full restoration of all layers of the road will take some time, so the traffic restrictions on Kotlářská remain in place, and may be extended depending on the progress of the repair work.
