Southampton Railway Trail Temporarily One Way

October 16, 2019

The Ministry of Public Works advises motorists that the Southampton Railway Trail, from George’s Bay Road to Tribe Road No 5, will be made one-way from Monday, 28th October to Sunday, 3rd November, 2019.

A Government spokesperson said, “This one-way system is being implemented to accommodate bus traffic for the PGA Bermuda Championship Golf Tournament being held at the Port Royal Golf Course.

“Only buses will be permitted to travel on the Railway Trail between the hours 5:00am until 8:00pm during the scheduled dates.

Pedestrian and Pedal Bicycles Restriction

“This section of the Railway Trail from George’s Bay Road to Tribe Road 5, Southampton will be prohibited to Pedestrians and Pedal Bicycles whilst buses are driven on this section of roadway. Pedestrians are therefore requested to use Middle Road sidewalk and avoid using this section of the railway trail.

Vehicle Restrictions

“Motorists and motor cycles will not be permitted to use this section of the Railway Trail whilst buses are travelling along it. Our aim is to avoid the potential for collision with buses. All motorists must avoid using this section of the Railway Trail during the time that buses are in operation.

“The Ministry of Public Works encourages the full cooperation of pedestrians and the motoring public, and apologizes for any inconvenience that may result.

“Should there be any questions regarding this road closure, please direct queries to the attention of Structural Engineer, Mr. Ricardo Graham-Ward 501-3122.”
