Sand-bags were in place in appropriate places - at Cambalt Road intersection
This is the scene at the intersection of Cambalt Road and Putney Hill mid-morning Saturday. This driver was more than a little surprised to find his path barred. The tape came down later in the day. Walking down the west pavement was impossible all day.
A 12" cast-iron main had fractured.
This sign suggests that repairs may well take until Wednesday
