Motorists will be forced to continue dodging water gushing from under Bringelly Road at Kingswood, with no clear indication of when the ongoing problem will be fixed.
Water main breaks have plagued the busy road for some time, but the issue near the intersection with Santley Crescent has rolled on for months.
Sydney Water, who is responsible for fixing the leak, offered no timeline of a repair when contacted by the Weekender.
“Due to the location and complexity of the leak, the repair requires significant planning to minimise the impact on the water network and our supply to customers,” a Sydney Water spokesperson said.
“Our crews will be working to safely complete the repairs as quickly as possible. We apologise for the inconvenience caused to our customers.”
It comes as Penrith Council, via NSW Government funding, starts work on improving Bringelly Road’s main shopping area.
“This revitalisation at Bringelly Road will improve the street amenity with enhancements including seating, artworks, lighting and footpath replacement,” said Penrith MP Stuart Ayres.
Work has been underway this month.
