A BURST water main caused disruption to traffic on busy Fifteenth Street yesterday.

Lower Murray Water customers in the area around Irymple Avenue were without water for about 90 minutes and traffic had to be diverted around the affected area as emergency works took place to repair damage to a water main and the road.

LMW communications and engagement manager Leesa Merrett said the water main was scheduled for replacement next week and temporary measures were undertaken yesterday before the planned works are completed in conjunction with the installation of a roundabout at the intersection.
