A section of Canal Road in Pembroke has been closed this morning after part of a wall collapsed.

A police spokeswoman warned that the hazard was dangerous for both motorists and pedestrians

The spokeswoman said: “The one-way portion of Canal Road has been closed due to wall erosion in the area of the tunnel, making it a potential danger for motorists and pedestrians to pass through.

“We are asking that the public avoid the Canal Road tunnel area and use alternative routes until it is deemed safe to reopen this portion of the road.”

Canal Road runs from Palmetto Road past the WER Joell Tennis Stadium to the roundabout at Laffan Street.
