Dec 16, 2010

Victoria, BC – A broken water main at 1506 Admirals Road in the Northbound through lane (adjacent to Canadian Tire) is causing significant disruption today. The 150mm water main pipe has ruptured and will take approximately six hours to repair.

“Crews are working as quickly as possible to repair the rupture,” said Ted Robbins, Acting General Manager, Integrated Water Services.

Residents traveling through View Royal this afternoon are advised to avoid the area if possible, and to expect significant traffic delays on Admirals and Craigflower Roads. Roads will not be closed but lane use will be restricted while crews work in the area. The cause of the rupture is not known at this time.
