A Government spokesperson said, “The Ministry of Public Works wishes to inform the motoring public that the ongoing BELCO trenching project on Palmetto Road has reached Barker’s Hill roundabout.

“The Palmetto Road westbound lane has been closed and traffic is being rerouted via North Shore Road and Barkers’ Hill to head west on Middle Road. 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.

“Trenching work is ongoing until Friday September 2nd, 2022. Working hours will be from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Sunday.

“Motorists are asked to avoid the lane closure section on Palmetto Road and lane closure section on Barker’s Hill by using alternative routes via Middle Road from Store Hill or Frog Lane.

“Traffic controls will be under the direction of BELCO representatives and will be managed through traffic control signals and directional signs during rush hours.

“Motorists are advised to drive cautiously through the construction sites and avoid speeding to protect themselves and construction workers on site.

“The Ministry of Public Works wishes to encourage the full cooperation of the public and apologizes for any inconvenience that may result.
