THE flooding of water in Windhoek’s Klein Windhoek suburb will take hours, and possibly days to fix.
In what is likely one of the biggest pipe bursts in Windhoek, the City Police cautioned public members about the closing off of the intersection of Nelson Mandela Avenue and Metje Street, where floods of water have been observed.
The pipe bursts occurred on Sunday.
City of Windhoek staff has since been working around the clock on the pipe to save wasted water.
“The pipe that burst was old. We are working hard to restore the problem. It is unfortunate that the traffic signs have been affected and we have since closed off the road,” a worker on site said.
