Roads closed during parade

Motorists have been warned of a road closure in St David's this Saturday to accommodate the Bermuda Heroes Weekend ‘Parade of Bands'.

The Ministry of Public Works announced that Southside Road from the junction at St David's Road and Southside Road (at the old No 2 gate location) to the junction at Cooper's Island Road and Pepper Hall Road will be closed to traffic from 1.30pm until 6.00pm.

The parade will travel from Southside Road and St. David's Road junction along Southside Road to the Clearwater Beach Park off Cooper Island Road.

“Residents and business owners may access their property only as directed by police and parade marshals,” said a Government spokesperson. “There will be passage provided to their properties by alternating road closures and road openings at junctions along the Southside Road.

“While Southside Road is closed to traffic, the police will direct traffic at major intersections along this road and permit temporary access through various junctions along Southside Road. The public are asked to follow the direction of police and the parade marshals present at the intersection while the parade takes place.

“Alternative routes will be used to redirect emergency vehicles around the parade event. Should there be inclement weather, this parade will be postponed.

“The Ministry would like to encourage the full co-operation of the motoring public and apologises for any inconvenience that may result.”
