Paisley Daily Express - - Get Set For First Round Of Brilliant Beer Festival -

Driv­ers came face to face with a car wash with a dif­fer­ence yes­ter­day.

A burst wa­ter main in Kil­barchan’s Eas­dale Bank saw wa­ter shoot up as high as 30ft.

One Kil­barchan res­i­dent said: “The wa­ter was shoot­ing up all over the road but cars just drove past it.

“There had been road resur­fac­ing work all last week.

“I don’t know if that had any­thing to do with it or not.”

Scot­tish Wa­ter said the cause of the burst was un­clear, how­ever.

A spokesman said: “Scot­tish Wa­ter is deal­ing with a burst wa­ter main in Easwald Bank, Kil­barchan.

“En­gi­neers are on site work­ing to re­solve the is­sue and thank cus­tomers and lo­cal res­i­dents for their pa­tience and un­der­stand­ing while the re­pair is under way.”

A Ren­frew­shire Coun­cil spokesman said its road resur­fac­ing work had fin­ished on Satur­day and had not in­volved deep ex­ca­va­tion.
