Motorists advised that street-lighting project will cause traffic diversions on Friars Hill, from Friday, December 2

Motorists who complain daily about being inconvenienced by the roadworks taking place across the island will experience further traffic disruptions – this time on the Friars Hill Road.

Officials from the Ministry of Works say that work under the national street-lighting project will result in complete road closures on Friars Hill Road to facilitate the movement of heavy-duty equipment, which will be undertaking excavation work and concrete pours, respectively.

This work will run for seven days, starting this Friday, December 2, until Friday December 9.  The expected time of inconvenience will be from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. daily.

Therefore, northbound traffic is asked to make a left turn onto St. John’s Street, heading west, then a right turn onto Popeshead Street heading north; then a right turn onto Dickenson Bay Street heading east then a left turn onto Friars Hill Road.

Southbound traffic, on the other hand, will be required to divert onto Stapleton Lane, exiting near the Government House roundabout.

Local access will be maintained during the planned closures, according to the Ministry of Works.

Road users are being advised to proceed with caution when traveling in the work zones.
