Trenching work reduces section of Palmetto Road to one lane


Traffic on a section of Palmetto Road has been limited to a single lane as trenching work continues.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Public Works said the trenching work, carried out by Belco, had reached the Barker’s Hill roundabout.

“The Palmetto Road westbound lane has been closed and traffic is being rerouted via North Shore Road and Barker’s Hill to head west on Middle Road,” the spokesman said.

“Inclusive the northbound lane on Barker's Hill is closed and traffic is being rerouted via Parson Lane to reach Palmetto Road.

“Once this trenching section has been completed and paved, the trench will continue through the roundabout to the North Shore Road westbound lane and extend east to Store Hill junction.”

The work is expected to continue between 7am to 6pm until September 2.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes to avoid the area.
