MAJOR TRAFFIC DISRUPTIONS are expected in Galway city centre this afternoon following the collapse of a drainage culvert at a street junction.

Galway City Council has shut off Flood Street, St Augustine Street, and Middle Street in the vicinity of Spanish Arch while engineering crews deal with the issue.

The closures are expected to affect traffic in the city to a major extent in the coming hours.

Galway Bay FM reports that the city council are hopeful of completing the necessary repair work by the end of the day, but this may prove problematic as the maintenance required involves the sourcing and installation of specialist steel plates.
