Burst pipe causing delays on main road

**UPDATE** Water has been restored to all surrounding properties, but repairs to the road are ongoing.

EARLIER: A BURST water main could cause long delays for anyone heading through Bundamba this morning, with water seeping from under the road.

Water is being forced up through one of the area's main intersections, and water is coming from under the tarmac and heading up Mining Street, past Bunnings.

Crews have been on the scene since early this morning and at this stage, one lane is closed heading east.

This will cause delays for anyone heading to Brisbane on Brisbane Road, and could cause problems for anyone heading to Bundamba State School nearby in the next hour.

Michelle Cull from Urban Utilities said that currently one lane continues to be closed, and crews have been on the scene since the problem was reported at 4.24 this morning. 

"At this stage there are now 55 surrounding properties without water, and drivers may want to avoid the area if at all possible."

Urban Utilities have advised the QT that part of the road will have to be excavated as the pipe is under the road, so drivers can expect delays at the intersection for quite some time yet. 

More updates as they come to hand.
