Road work continues near Devonshire Bay

Road works have resumed in the Devonshire Bay area of South Road as the Ministry of Public Works makes efforts to enhance the road's strength.

In a statement this morning about the continued work in the area, a spokeswoman said: “The resurfacing plan for this road involves laying an initial layer of sand-asphalt to prepare the existing damaged road, followed by a thicker layer of asphalt to increase the overall asphalt thickness, enhance the strength of the road and make it more resistant to water damage and flooding.

“The lower layer of asphalt was laid in 2014-15 before work was suspended on this site for repair and refurbishment work on the ministry's asphalt manufacturing plant and to allow resurfacing work on other priority sites at Scaur Hill and Dutton Avenue.

“The final layer is now being laid on the section up to the Collector's Hill service station and works will continue towards Sayle Road during December. The ministry apologises for any inconvenience caused to road users and local residents and businesses.”
