The water company was notified last night of a flood building at the roundabout, between the Maresfield and Crowborough exits, by Sam Imber following a post carried on the Uckfield News Facebook page.
They told him this morning: “Thank you for your notification of this event. It was really helpful and enabled us to divert water from other parts of our network to keep customers’ supplies flowing.
“We will be working at Budletts Roundabout on the A26 for most of today to repair a damaged section of 12″ main.”
South East Water added they did not think customers supplies’ would be affected.
