Wedco repairing Dockyard signs

Wedco will be repairing and replacing signs in Dockyard after a complaint from the public.

Earlier this week, Judith Swan wrote to this newspaper about a sign, intended to give information about convict hulks, which she described as “virtually unreadable”.

“It captured my interest because it was erected and displayed along the walkway to/from the cruise ship terminal and the sign relates to the convict hulks in Bermuda,” she said.

“This is historical content that residents and tourists would be interested in. Over time the lettering has faded and has become obscured.

“[I]can’t understand why the person responsible for maintaining Dockyard hasn’t noticed that it needs a facelift. Please fix it for goodness sake.”

Wedco general manager Andrew Dias said the issue is being addressed, and that the corporation had intended to review and improve signage in general throughout Dockyard.

“It will be taken down for the time being so it won’t be an eyesore, and then it will be repaired,” Mr Dias said. “It should be back up in a week or a couple of weeks at most.”
