The Ministry of Public Works said they would like to advise the motoring public of the traffic restrictions on the west bound lane of Palmetto Road west of Bishops Spencer Road.
A spokesperson said, “It is anticipated that this lane closure will be in effect for a significant period of time until such time as the rock cut that collapsed on the property on Perimeter Lane is stabilized.
“The stabilization of the rock cut is not the Ministry’s responsibility – the landowners on Perimeter Lane are responsible for constructing a proper retaining wall there.
“The Ministry advises motorists to use alternative routes, for example, Northshore Road via Blackwatch Pass or Frog Lane/Parsons Road,” the spokesperson continued.
“Traffic is being restricted off the westbound lane of Palmetto Road to ensure public safety and traffic lights are expected to be installed shortly to manage the traffic flow from east of Palmetto Road.
“The Ministry apologizes for any inconvenience to the motoring public caused by this traffic diversion and requests that traffic signs in this area are observed.”
