(UPDATE: 20.07.2014, 00:13am) COVENTRY CULTURE HAS BEEN INFORMED THAT THE ROAD IS STILL CLOSED. THANKS TO @ANGIEADDEY FOR THIS INFORMATION;
A Coventry road has now reopened. A collapsed manhole caused Albany Road in Earlsdon, Coventry to close on late Saturday afternoon. Binley Fire Station attended the area at 17:02pm. At 17:20pm, The Earlsdon Police Team tweeted that “a collapsed drain has made the road unsafe to use”
Crews currently in attendance at collapsed road / drain in Albany Road. Road has been closed. We suggest drivers take an alternative route!
