A busy commuter route into Bath has reopened after emergency work to repair a burst water main was completed.
More than 3,000 homes lost supplies after a nine-inch (23cm) pipe fractured on the A36 Lower Bristol Road, near Churchill Bridge, early on Wednesday.
The burst caused significant damage to the road and much of it had to be dug up to allow access to the pipework.
A Bath and North East Somerset Council spokesman said the closure was lifted on Friday morning.
