A water main burst yesterday morning on Shepparton’s Balaclava Rd between The Boulevard and Regent St, disrupting traffic.

Goulburn Valley Water acting operations manager Frances Darmanin said the burst was most likely because of ground movement in the area.

‘‘We’ve had very hot weather this week, which can cause the ground to move and even the slightest movement sometimes causes the pipes to crack,’’ she said.

Goulburn Valley Water staff were notified of the burst at 7am and had to shut off the water supply to nearby properties while the burst was fixed.

‘‘We were able to reinstate water supply to affected customers by 10.30am, with the pipe fixed and clean up completed by lunch time,’’ she said.
