Repair work is under way after a burst water main led to the closure of a street and delays in Brisbane's CBD on Tuesday morning.
Queensland Urban Utilities were alerted to the incident on Makerston Street, near the intersection with Roma Street, about 4.30am on Tuesday.

The pipe had been repaired by 10am, with work then turning to the cracked road surface. Images from the scene showed water gushing from a number of holes and pooling along the gutter.
"The repair is complex due to underground services in the area, so work is expected to continue throughout the day," QUU spokeswoman Michelle Cull said.
"Traffic control is in place and both lanes of Makerston Street are closed near Roma Street, so motorists are advised to please seek alternative routes."
A small section of bus lane along Roma Street is also closed at the intersection, though there has been no impact to services using the route.
A Queensland police spokesman said delays were expected in the area.
