Belfast's Cromac Street reopens after road collapse

The damaged caused to the Road on Cromac Street in Belfast City Centre, after it collapsing into what is believed to be a large hole above a storm-water tunnel

Motorists were delighted today to see a busy street in Belfast city centre reopen after it collapsed when an underground air bubble caused a hole to emerge.

Cromac Street, one of the main arterial routes for commuters coming in to the city from south and east Belfast, was damaged last Saturday causing the tarmac to buckle.

The section of road between East Bridge Street and Victoria Street reopened to traffic on Friday evening
