Road closure causes delays

Motorists can expect further delays along a stretch of Harbour Road until July as a result of construction work.

It comes after traffic was diverted on to Lovers Lane and Chapel Road over the weekend so that an old Bermuda roof deemed to be a danger to road users could be removed.

According to a spokeswoman from the Ministry of Public, it was anticipated that the roof removal would be completed by midday today.

“Then Harbour Road will operate as single lane use under traffic control from Valley Road to the lower ferry stop.

“The single lane traffic use will be required until approximately July 3 to allow the new roof to be reconstructed.

“Traffic will be under traffic signal control during non-peak traffic times and will be under STOP and GO boards during peak traffic times.

“Motorists are asked to use the detour routes posted along Harbour Road to avoid any traffic delays on this section of roadway.”

Long queues formed yesterday as traffic was diverted because of the roof repairs at 104 Harbour Road.

“The work is necessary as this very old roof has been assessed and found to be in danger of collapse such as to represent a danger to users of Harbour Road,” the spokeswoman added.

“The Ministry would like to encourage the full co-operation of the motoring public and apologises for any inconvenience caused by these essential works.”
