Roadworks deadline extended

The Ministry of Public Works announced its third extension for the deadline on road work along Harbour Road, Warwick (File photograph)

Repairs to a collapsed section of road have been extended to next month, the Ministry of Public Works announced today.

A ministry spokesman said repairs to Harbour Road had been delayed by “inclement weather coupled with the inability to source local materials resulted in considerable delays to completing repairs to the wall” and that the new completion date - the third since the project started - was March 21.

He added that a one-lane closure along Middle Road in Warwick scheduled to start next Monday will be postponed to “avoid additional disruption to road users”.

Emergency repairs were started on the waterside lane between Burnt House Hill and Tamarind Vale after it collapsed into the sea late last year.

The section has been reduced to single-lane traffic for more than a month.

The work was at first hoped to be completed by December 18, but the timeline was pushed back to the end of January.

The timeline was then put back to mid-February.

The ministry last Friday announced plans to start trench work on Middle Road between the Belmont electricity substation and the junction with Longford Road as part of a two-year Belco project to upgrade its power grid.

The Middle Road closure will start once the Harbour Road work is completed.

Questions on the Harbour Road lane closure can be answered by Tina Beer-Searle, the civil engineer for the Ministry of Public Works, at 501-3044.
