Govt Repairs Roads On Bermuda Day Route

May 25, 2023

[Written by Don Burgess]

The government has swung into quick action to make temporary repairs to fix the roads ahead of Friday’s Bermuda Day festivities.

A deluge of rain hammered the island this week, leaving a multitude of potholes scattered across the roads.

Works & Engineering were working from St. George’s to Bernard Park to ensure the Half Marathon Derby race route was free of potholes.

The temporary fix saw the crew filling in the holes with asphalt to secure the safety of runners and cyclists. A more permanent fix is slated to happen in the near future.

A Government spokesperson told Bernews, “We are repairing roads damaged by the heavy rains experienced earlier this week. All areas along the race route are now completed and teams are continuing to tackle areas across the island. These measures are of course temporary and will be addressed permanently in the future.” divider line ewrr

    “Swung” into action.

    They got leftover something and now will pay 50 guys to work 100 hours to fill holes.

    The best part of this article is the use of the word “temporary”.

    Look How much money to license our cars every year at TCD. How many cars got their alignment messed up on these Potholes? Primarily roads that hadn’t been paved in many years , that had thousands of CRACKS in them had all the potholes. Thanks Government!
    Around Paget Traffic lights and Botanical Gardens the roads are in great condition. They were paved not to many years ago- no Potholes in these! Many other areas with years’ old trenches still have NOT been rendered. Why??? Other sections of roads that are in deplorable state, that are not getting trenched , should already have been milled and repaved! We the Public pay for the roads through our taxes and licensing. GOVERNMENT is Liable and needs to stop making excuses why they are not paving 14% of the roads each year, which was a stated fact years ago. Even before BELCO started chopping into them!
