DRIVERS faced long delays as workers repaired a water pipe in Horbury Bridge this morning.

Temporary traffic lights caused tailbacks on the A642 between Huddersfield and Wakefield.

Yorkshire Water workers were carrying out repairs on a water pipe in Horbury Bridge.

A spokesman for Yorkshire Water said: “Whilst we always try to complete every water pipe repair as quickly as possible, unfortunately on this occasion it took longer than anticipated which meant we were still at the site this morning.

“We’d like to thank local residents and road users who were very patient and confirm the good news that the repair has now been completed and everything is back to normal.”
