Road works to impact traffic on Kindley Field Road
Road works to advance the solar farm at LF Wade International Airport will impact traffic on Kindley Field Road from next week.
The Ministry of Public Works said that Saturn Solar Development, the developer behind the solar farm, will reopen an existing trench along Cahow Way in order to install an additional pipe linking the farm to the new airport substation.
A spokesman said: “Most of the trench works will be along the Kindley Field Road shoulder along airport fence and the helicopter building area.
“This lane closure will take place from Friday, July 2, and possibly stretch out until July 12. The works along the shoulder will possibly commence June 28.
“Traffic controls will be under direction of D & J Excavation representatives and will be managed through traffic control crew with stop and go signs.”
The spokesman also warned motorists that Belco will carry out trenching work near Store Hill in Smith’s starting early next month.
“These works will require a full road closure to allow for Belco’s trench work to be aligned close to the centerline of Store Hill.
“The works will commence July 7 through to August 27. Working hours will be from 7.30am to 6pm daily.
“Access will be provided to residents and emergency services only. Traffic controls will be under direction of Belco representatives and will be managed through traffic control signals and signage.”
