Thames Water sent engineers to the site this morning
Motorists driving near Sidcup station could face delays for up to a week due to a burst water main.
Thames Water has put up temporary three-way traffic lights at the junction of Halfway Street and Old Farm Road East, after it began repairing the burst on Tuesday morning.
Bexley council confirmed: “works are expected to last no more than seven days” as Thames Water replaces a piece of pipe with several breaks.
Halfway Street currently remains closed with a signed diversion in place for motorists during the repair works.
A spokesperson from Thames Water said: “We’re sorry for any disruption caused by the burst water main on Old Farm Road, Sidcup.
“It’s a complicated repair and there may be some traffic disruption as we’ve had to install temporary traffic lights, but we’ll be done as soon as we can.”
