The city continues to grapple with recurrent incidents of pipe bursts, with another water pipe in Guwahati Club bursting on Tuesday morning, indicating a persistent issue.

At approximately 9:30 am in the morning, a water pipe installed by Railways experienced a burst, and the relevant authorities were promptly notified about the incident.

Despite the incident being reported at 9:30 am, water continued to spill onto the road, flooding nearby areas until 10:30 am. When questioned about the one-hour delay in authorities’ response, a police official explained that the work could only commence after shutting off the main line through which water flowed in the pipe.

Meanwhile, Railway department officials on-site informed The Assam Tribune, stating, “We promptly reached the location because the main line needed to be shut off before commencing the repair work. The pipe in question was installed by Railways”.
