However, the water company has been unable to say when the mains will be fixed.

Taking to Twitter, Portsmouth Water said: ‘We are now on site and will be setting up stop and go boards on Havant Road so traffic can still use main route.

‘There will still be traffic disruption. It appears there are some no-water issues.

‘We are working as hard as we can to resolve this issue.’
