A busy road in Nottingham will re-open tonight, after its closure for repairs to a leaking gas main caused havoc for commuters in the city.

Canal Street is expected to open to westbound traffic from 8pm tonight after engineers monitored the area this morning and found no gas readings.

It means that the leak repairs have been successful, allowing excavations to be filled in and resurfaced.

“We would like to thank people in Nottingham for their patience while we carried out this work. For the safety of everyone in the area it was vital that we completed these repairs. We are sorry for any delays caused to people’s journeys.”
