Road closures in city start today

Reid Street at Spurling Hill will be closed to all traffic as of 7am today to allow repaving, the City of Hamilton has announced.

A City spokeswoman yesterday said: “There will be one lane of traffic from the East Broadway round-a-bout through to Front Street with no access to Spurling Hill.

“Traffic travelling into Hamilton along Middle Road will be diverted at Montpelier Road, Corkscrew Hill and Shelton Road.

“However, there will be access to Cavendish Car Park.”

Between 7.30am and 4.30pm, drivers leaving Hamilton, King Street between Reid and Front Street will be limited to a single lane.

Traffic will not be able to pass down Spurling Hill onto East Broadway, but instead must travel along Front Street to reach East Broadway.

However, between 4.30pm and 7.30am, drivers will be able to use Reid Street Extension onto Middle Road or Spurling Hill to leave the City.

COO for the City, Ed Benevides said the City is working as hard as possible to make sure the road works are completed in as brief a time as possible, but warned that the closures are subject to the inclement weather that has been predicted to affect the Island.

“We apologise for the inconvenience and strongly encourage people to leave home a few minutes earlier in the morning to avoid delay,” he said.
