South Shore Smith’s barrier replaced
Repair work on a roadside barrier along South Shore Road has been completed at a cost of more than $200,000.
A government spokeswoman said: “Due to public safety concerns, the wall area underwent construction repairs and upgrades which included reinforcing the area and rebuilding the sidewalk and foundation.”
The work was scheduled to finish last December.
The spokeswoman said: “Delays were due to weather and a shortage of concrete supply. The total repair costs totalled just over $200,000.”
The railing and sidewalk near Watch Hill Park, in Smith’s, were removed last September.
The spokeswoman said the work was funded from the Ministry of Public Works’ budget.
The ministry said in November that the project was “anticipated to last several more weeks, into December”.
But it is understood that work continued well into this year. Photographs published by The Royal Gazette in November showed exposed metal rods along the south side of the road, which were uncovered after the railing and sidewalk were removed. Temporary plastic barriers were later installed to cover the rods.
