Burst water main in Ringwood Road, Bear Cross, Bournemouth


On Wednesday, a section of our water main underneath a dual carriageway section of Ringwood Road burst. This is located close to the Bear Cross roundabout.

Our team have been working around the clock to repair damage to the pipe and the road. Both southbound lanes are open but because of the extent of the damage and the complexity of the repair, both northbound lanes will remain closed from West Howe to the Bear Cross roundabout until the repair is complete.

We recommend commuters check local travel news. We apologise to all our customers for the disruption caused and want to reassure them that we will do everything we can to complete the reinstatement and reopen the road as soon as possible.

Should you get a water meter?

Water meters have important benefits for you, for us and for the environment as you can have more control over your water use and leaks are easier to detect.
