Water pipe bursts in Tsuen Wan creating towering fountain and unexpected ‘car wash’


27th November 2023 – (Hong Kong) Texaco Road in Tsuen Wan experienced a major water pipe burst near the intersection of Lung Tak Street earlier today at around 11am. Video footage from online sources captured the dramatic scene as water gushed out like a towering fountain, reaching approximately three floors high. The powerful jets of water splashed in all directions, affecting the surrounding road sections. In a particularly noteworthy incident, a vehicle’s dashboard camera recorded the moment it slowed down for an impromptu “free car wash.” As the vehicle entered the inundated area, the windshield was completely submerged, rendering the driver’s visibility of the road nonexistent.
