Marylebone Road to be shut for 24 hours
Burst water main forces total closure of the major road in one direction
Road users are being urged to avoid the Baker Street and Marylebone area with Marylebone Road set to be closed eastbound for at least 24 hours.
A Thames Water main has split across the entire width of the eastbound section of the road forcing it to be totally closed to traffic.
It is estimated the closure, which was put in place earlier this morning, is likely to continue for at least 24 hours while repairs are carried out.
A local diversion is in place for buses and other road users around Regent’s Park while the A40 will be shut eastbound from the Northern Roundabout with diversions in place.

Transport for London’s Garrett Emmerson said: “This is clearly a key section of London’s road network and we are closely monitoring Thames Water’s work to ensure they complete their repairs with the utmost urgency and are doing everything possible to minimise the amount of traffic disruption that this will inevitably cause.”
