Updated: Liverpool Road in Buckley is back open with temporary traffic lights in place.

A main road in Buckley is closed while workers fix a burst water main.

Liverpool Road has been closed in both directions near the junction with Rhuddlan Road while water company engineers work at the site of the burst.

There were also reports of a small gas leak at the same location but that was quickly repaired by Wales & West Utilities engineers.

The closure has impacted motorists travelling from Ewloe to Buckley.

Welsh Water has said: “We’re aware of a burst on our network which is affecting the Water Supply to this area. Until the pipe is fixed, you may experience low pressure or no water. We expect all supplies to be fully restored by later this morning”

Colin Davies, Wales & West Utilities Operational Manager for Buckley said:

“We were called to a smell of gas in the Liverpool Road area of Buckley today and immediately sent an engineer to investigate. On arrival, we found that the water company were working to repair a burst water main in the area and, to do so safely, they had closed the road.

“After completing our safety checks we found a small gas leak in the same area and repaired it. Once the water company finish their work to fix the burst water main, we will fill in the holes that we have dug. We will not need to close the road to do this.”

Arriva Buses Wales has said bus services will be diverting via St David’s Park and Drury

The bus company tweeted: “Liverpool road, Buckley has been closed due to a Gas Leak so the X4 and 5 service will be diverting via St David’s Park ,Wood Lane and Drury in both directions, And will not be able to serve Ewloe due to this closure we are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.”
