Rolling road restrictions in East End for five months
The Ministry of Public Works today warned motorists that traffic along an East End road will be delayed from next month until spring next year for roadworks.
A ministry spokesman said a one-lane closure will be in force from Coney Island Road to Fractious Street and the Belco substation in Hamilton Parish because of trench work by power firm Belco and that the work will require some sections of the road and Railway trail to be closed altogether.
The roadworks will start on November 2 and continue until March 31 next year.
Work will be carried out from the bridge behind Bailey’s Bay Cricket Club to the Railway Trail, then to the Bailey’s Bay footbridge, along the eastbound lane of North Shore Road and onto Fractious Street.
The road work and closures will be carried out in 200ft sections between 8am and 6pm Monday to Saturday.
Traffic will be managed with lights and signs and directional signs by staff from Belco, Island Construction and the Department of Works and Engineering.
The ministry spokesman told the public to be careful when passing through construction areas and appealed to them not to speed for their safety and the safety of the construction workers.
He added: “The public is asked to avoid these lane closure sections and to use alternative routes via Ducks Puddle Drive and North Shore Road for the duration of this trench work.
“Due to the wide and long open trench works, sections of the railway trail and road will be completely closed for the 200-foot sections.”
