Crews repair pipe leak in Tiger St

ABOUT 20 houses, a Freedom Fuels service station and the Coronation Hotel were without running water for much of Tuesday.

Water from a burst pipe under Tiger St surfaced on Monday morning and Queensland Urban Utilities crews were called in.

The water main was switched off and Tiger St was shut at the Omar St end while the crews did their work.

Traffic controllers were also called in as the crews toiled under the hot sun.

The workmen dug three holes in the bitumen road surface to discover the source of the leak.

It was repaired by 2.45pm and the road was reopened to traffic soon afterwards.

Queensland Urban Utilities is investigating the cause of the leak.
