St George’s trenching extended until September

A lane closure on an East End thoroughfare will continue until September, the Ministry of Public Works has announced.

The traffic disruption is because of Bermuda Land Development Company trench work.

A notice published in the Official Gazette said that work between Rocky Hill Park and Ferry Reach Road would need a one-lane closure until September 2, 2022.

It added: “The trench work will remain in the westbound lane on Mullet Bay Road until it reaches Ferry Reach Road unless existing conditions mandate a switch over into the eastbound lane.

“Working hours will be from 7am to 6pm, weekly from Monday through Saturday.

“Motorists, especially construction vehicles, buses and taxis, are asked to use caution when passing the open trench since it may at times be near the centre yellow line and can be quite deep.”

Island Construction Services representatives will manage traffic controls through signs and signals.

The notice added: “The Ministry of Public Works wishes to encourage the full co-operation of the public and apologises for any inconvenience that may result.”

An earlier announcement said that the trench works would run until April 3, 2022, after they resumed on January 4 following a deferment over the holidays.

Questions about the works can be directed to Stephen Tucker, a BLDC project manager, by calling 501-3010.

Traffic control queries can be addressed to Tina Beer-Searle, the acting principal highways engineer for the public works ministry, on 501-3044.
