Road at Belco power station reopens
A road closed off to traffic for more than a year because of construction work has reopened.
Cemetery Road in Pembroke was closed off to allow power firm Belco to carry out work on its north power station.
Dennis Pimentel, the company’s president, said: “I would like to sincerely thank the public for its patience while Cemetery Road has been closed for the last few years as we built the north power station.”
Mr. Pimentel added: “As we have said previously, the north power station is the last traditional power plant we anticipate building in Bermuda as we work towards increasing renewable energy generation to provide a clean, safe and cost-effective power source for the island.”
A company spokesman added that the public was advised to use caution on the road, which reopened on New Year’s Day, as Belco staff would be making regular crossings to transport equipment and supplies.
He warned: “These crossings can take place at any time of day, 24 hours a day.”
The spokesman said: “Belco is committed to the safety of the company’s staff and the public and will be working with the Ministry of Works to ensure crossings can be made safely and with minimal disruption to the public.”
