A construction project in Koprivnička Street, Zagreb, has resulted in a burst pipe that caused water to reach heights of up to 5 meters and damaged a nearby house. The incident occurred while the construction work was ongoing in the area. It is believed that the temporary water supply to the street during the pipe works may have been affected by the construction activity.
According to an eyewitness, the water damaged the roof, windows, and facade of the affected house. The Zagreb police have confirmed that the water was leaking from a hydrant and that Waterworks workers were notified about the situation. However, unofficially, it has been reported that the pipe burst during the construction works.
The incident highlights the potential risks associated with construction projects in urban areas and underscores the need for careful planning and execution to prevent such incidents from occurring. The authorities and construction workers must address this situation promptly and take necessary measures to ensure public safety and integrity of surrounding infrastructure.
