Government seeks proposals to repair Canal Road supports
The Government has put out a request for proposals to replace damaged struts on Canal Road in Pembroke.
The one-way portion of the road that runs from Palmetto Road past the WER Joell Tennis Stadium to the roundabout at Laffan Street was blocked off last August after concerns arose about wall erosion near a tunnel that passes under Cedar Avenue.
Police at the time said the closure was necessary because the erosion presented a hazard to motorists and pedestrians.
According to the RFP, published last week, the Government wanted to find a contractor to replace two damaged struts located near the tunnel.
The RFP said: “The work consists of demolition of two existing damaged struts, constructing new struts with reinforced concrete and the supply and installation of two steel beams.”
A mandatory pre-bid meeting for the project is scheduled to take place on May 24, with the deadline for submissions on June 9.
