It is also close to Sheffield Children's Hospital and Weston Park Hospital, which are just up the A57. 

The water company has closed the road so that engineers can safely work to fix the issue as quickly as possible.

A Yorkshire Water statement said: "We know road works like this are inconvenient, and we’d like to thank our customers for their patience whilst our teams are working as quickly as they can to fix the issue.

"We will reopen the road as soon as it is safe to do so."

Yorkshire Water are urging people to avoid this area and use alternative travel routes wherever possible.
