The Water Supplies Department (WSD) today (August 31) would like to clarify in respect of media enquiries about the work to replace the water main in Gloucestor Road.

According to a WSD spokesman, the water main replacement work has been proceeding according to plan and all concerned government departments have been actively assisting in its implementation.  The plan is to replace the sections of water pipe on eastbound Gloucester Road and that turning into Fleming Road before replacing the section across Gloucester Road. In light of the burst incident, the WSD will continue to work with relevant government departments with a view to replacing the section of water main across Gloucestor Road within this year.
