(Updated 1:41pm 11th January 2017)
UPDATE: Repair work completed and A418 back to normal.
A burst water main's been one of the reasons behind traffic issues in Aylesbury this morning.
Now we've heard from Thames Water on how the repairs are going.
They say they're hopeful the work will be done and dusted today, with three-way temporary traffic lights disappearing by tonight's rush hour.
In a statement, the company said:
"We're sorry for the disruption our repairs are causing this morning.
"We've been fixing a burst water pipe overnight and will be filling in the hole we dug and resurfacing the road today.
"We hope to be able to remove the traffic lights in time for this evening's rush-hour."
- The pipe that burst is 6 inches in diameter
- It is on Oxford Road in Stone
- Thames Water are using three-way temporary traffic lights so their team can work safely
The work has caused huge queues on Oxford Road into and out of Aylesbury.
On top of that, roadworks in Stoke Mandeville have added to the problem.
