Clean Up To Begin For ‘Finger’ Solar Project

June 25, 2018 | 6 Comments

The Ministry of Transport and Regulatory Affairs is advising motorists of site clean-up works to take place on ‘The Finger’ in St. David’s in connection with the new solar project.

“Works will begin June 26th until July 31st, Monday through Friday,” a spokesperson said. “Works will get underway at 9.30 a.m. and are expected to last through the afternoon.

As a result, motorist should expect to see trucks moving between Clear Water Beach and the Government Quarry in Harrington Sound along:

  • Cooper’s Island Road
  • Southside Road
  • St. David’s Road
  • Kindley Field Road
  • The Causeway
  • Wilkinson Avenue
  • Harrington Sound Road

“The Ministry takes this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience and thanks the public for their patience and cooperation.”

Earlier this month the Government said that the solar farm at the airport finger is expected to begin construction in the late summer or early fall and it should be operational in the first quarter of 2019.

    What a lot of garbage just on what wordage has been presented.

    “Finger”.

    I thought it was a restricted area. Runway 30 and opposite.

    Who the hell is in charge.

    This government sucks and has no clue.

    “sucks”. Irony.

      You do know that this was led by the previous government right?

      • puzzled says:

        Well aware.
        That does not negate the fact that this is a restricted area et al.

    Exciting stuff! Hopefully this will be the first of many renewable initiatives in Bermuda. For an island with such abundant sources of energy (sun, wind, waves, ocean currents, politician’s hot air!?), we are well suited to capitalize on this technology if the economics is right.
