Vehicle circulation on Avenida Pedralbes between Calle Pius XII and Calle Manuel Girona was cut off this Wednesday due to a water leak around 7:35 a.m.
Traffic on Avinguda Diagonal is also interrupted as it passes between Capità Arenes and Pius XII streets, the Catalan capital's City Council has informed Europa Press.
The incident began around 5:28 a.m. at the crossroads between Avenida Pedralbes and Calle Manuel Girona and, according to sources from Aigües de Barcelona to Europa Press, the residents have not been affected and maintain access to the supply.
The company has said that they hope to resolve the incident "as soon as possible": their technicians have reduced the water pressure, are trying to stabilize the network and are investigating the causes of the event.
As a result of the impact on traffic, there are detours on the Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB) bus lines H6, V3, 6, 7, 33, 34, 67, 70 and 175.
