Bristol Road in Selly Oak is blocked between Sainsbury’s and University of Birmingham, due to a bust water main outside The Goose Pub.
Residents and business in the area are currently suffering with water supply interruption.
Severn Trent Water has released the following statement: “This morning we’ve discovered a burst water pipe on Bristol Road South, outside The Goose pub, which may be causing water supplies to be off or at low pressure for some of our customers in the following postcode areas: B13, B14, B15, B29 & B30. Our teams are out on site now and will work hard to get this pipe fixed and everything back to normal as quickly as possible.

We know how difficult it is to have no water and we’re sorry for the inconvenience this may be causing. We’d like to reassure our customers that we’re doing everything we can to get the water supplies back on as soon as we can.

Due to the severity of the burst pipe, we have had to close the road to allow our teams to work safely and to keep road users safely away from the work area. Again we’d like to apologise for any disruption this may cause.”
