One hundred Margate properties affected by water main burst

Burst main in Margate

Some 100 properties in Margate are without water or experiencing low pressure this morning (August 20) due to a burst water main.

Queues are building up in Marine Terrace as Southern Water repairs the burst.

A Southern Water spokesperson said: “We’re currently repairing a 6” water main burst at Marine Terrace in Margate. Around 100 properties might be affected and may be experiencing issues with their water pressure.

“These are emergency works and we are working quickly and safely to repair the main. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank everyone for their patience.”


  1. It could have with that giant crane it depends how deep in the road the water pipes are. When they left they put up mesh high portable railings that anybody can lift out instead of putting back the wooden hoardings with art on it. The site could easily vandalised or set fire to by idiots or gypsies pulling in during the night.
