Weekend traffic delays at East End bridge
Traffic over a St George’s bridge will be reduced to a single lane at the weekend for maintenance work.
The work at Longbird Bridge will be carried out by Government workers on Sunday between 7.30am and 6pm.
A notice in the Official Gazette said: “These works will require a single lane closure to allow for the maintenance works to be undertaken safely.
“Single lane access will be maintained throughout the maintenance works, and traffic control will be managed through traffic control signals and signage.
“The Ministry of Public Works wishes to encourage the full co-operation of the public and apologises for any inconvenience that may result.”
The ministry earlier announced that money had been budgeted to carry out repairs to the bridges.
Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch, the public works minister, said in June that Government engineers were “chomping at the bit” to replace the ageing bridges.
But he added that financial constraints limited the amount of work that could be done.
