A burst water main at the junction of Brook Way and Kemperleye Way has led to 6,000 homes in Bradley Stoke and Stoke Gifford being without water, according to the BBC.
Information on the Bristol Water website states that repairs are taking longer than initially expected, with 8:30pm being given as the estimated time for the restoration of supplies.
UPDATE from Bristol Water at 8:50pm:
The burst main in Bradley Stoke has now been repaired. We are now in the process of getting the water back into the trunk main and connected pipes that supply the area affected. This process will take time as gradually the whole system refills.
We are sorry for any problems caused. The job took longer than expected and we thank customers for their patience.
