Anglian Water

Statement Regarding St. Paul’s Square work and the Closure of Horne Lane

 

Following the traffic disruption in Bedford caused by a burst water main a Borough Council Spokesperson:

 

“We have encouraged Anglian Water to address water related problems in St Paul’s Square for many months. With water collecting on the roads and with freezing conditions overnight and during the day we again contacted Anglian Water last week to report this and request action to address it.

 

It is incorrect of Anglian Water to attribute blame to the Council for the disruption and delays caused to traffic by this work as Anglian Water advised the Council that it would only be an overnight closure.

 

We understand that engineers from Anglian Water remain on site and will be working through the weekend to fix the leak. Based on their advice we expect work to be completed and the road to be opened on Monday afternoon. While this work continues we advise drivers to avoid Horne Lane and St. Paul’s Square and to expect delays in journeys through the town.

 

Buses coming into Bedford town have been diverted to Prebend Street and Midland Road. Local bus services are not stopping at Borough Hall, Bedford College or St Paul’s Square.

 

For anyone using the car parks at Riverside Square, River Street Multi-Storey or the Harpur Centre, bus lane restrictions have been removed so you will be able to access them by driving up River Street from Greyfriars.”
