Roadworks in Flatts for railway bridge

Drivers on North Shore Road in Smith's will face some detours and closures over the next three days as a bridge is installed as part of the Bermuda Railway Trail restoration.

The bridge will be installed near Gibbons Bay, according to a spokeswoman for public works, today through Wednesday, between 10am and 3pm. The preassembled bridge will be lifted into place by a crane during the road closure, which will restrict the road for normal traffic use. The following detours and closures will be in effect:


All traffic travelling east on North Shore Road, when reaching the junction with Store Hill, will be directed over Store Hill on to Middle Road.

All westerly traffic on North Shore Road, when reaching the junction with Middle Road, will be directed to Middle Road.

Flatts Village access

Flatts Village access will be permitted in a westerly direction from the North Shore and Middle Road junction. Traffic travelling east may access Flatts Village from the junction of North Shore Road and Jennings Road.

There will be no access from the junction of North Shore Road and Store Hill.

Bus service

Bus service on North Shore Road from the Middle Road East entrance of Flatts Village, to the junction with Store Hill, will be terminated while these works take place. Bus commuters are asked not to use the closed section of North Shore Road during the scheduled times of the works.

In case of bad weather, the roadworks will be rescheduled at a date to be determined.
