Emergency repairs have been carried out on an Aberdeen road after a water main burst.
Engineers from Scottish Water were sent to Provost Rust Drive in the Northfield area of the city after the issue was discovered shortly after 5pm today.
The issue has now been fixed with the water authority apologising to anyone affected.
A statement on the Scottish Water website said:”Repairs on the bust water main in Provost Rust Drive are now complete. Some customers might not be experiencing some discoloured water.
“This is quite common after some disruption in the water main where natural sediment lies. We do appreciate this this doesn’t always look nice and can be concerning for customers.
“Simply let your cold water tap run at half pressure until the water runs clear again. We apologise again for any inconvenience this has caused and thank you for bearing with us.”
We have a burst water main located at Provost Rust Drive, Aberdeen AB16. Our teams estimate that the repair will be completed by 19:30hrs this evening. https://t.co/UJnjOlBRiE
