“Since Thursday, 25 May, our skilled teams have been focused on patching potholes at various locations across the Island. The following are some of the areas that have received attention and repairs:

  • Bagged asphalt was utilised for potholes stretching from Flatt’s Village to Crawl Hill.
  • East End Asphalt assisted with supplying asphalt to the Ministry late Thursday before the Bermuda Holiday for repairs from St. George’s Square to Stokes Point Road and Middle Road in Flatts to Pembroke, effectively addressing pothole concerns along these stretches.
  • Crews addressed the area of Northshore Road from Flatts to Spanish Point, and while some spots were too shallow to treat, appropriate measures will be taken to address these areas as soon as possible.
  • Wallington Road East, South Road from Paget to Warwick, and Rocklands Road have been subject to repairs, with additional work required on Rocklands Road to ensure its optimal condition.
  • Potholes near the Henry VIII Restaurant on South Road were filled, with the road requiring further sweeping to enhance its cleanliness and safety.
  • Attention was given to Evans Bay, leading to Port Royal Fire Station, Richmond Road, and Rosemont Avenue near Hamilton Princess.
  • Pothole repairs were carried out from Pitts Bay Road, Pembroke to St. John’s Road, including Berkley Road, and Spurling Hill.

    They are working diligently to repair potholes because you have neglected our roads for decades! People have been complaining about it forever. The rain was not the cause of the potholes, they just exposed how bad they road were. All W&E are doing is putting lipstick on the pig Our roads have never been worse!

      I have driven on the 2,000+ year-old Appian Way in Rome, Italy. It has far fewer potholes than roads in Bermuda.

  4. Joe Bloggs says:

    such a statement should not be necessary if the roads had been properly maintained for the last few decades

    • LOL - the real one says:

      Where is the planning for stronger roads built to hold up under the weight of electric buses and future EVs? HAHAHAHA! I made a funny!

  7. LOL - the real one says:

    How many potholes are made worse by running overweight electric buses on roads not designed to carry that extra weight? Just wait for the banning of ICE vehicles and running EVs on our substandard roads. Who is going to pay for the road upgrades?

    It is HIGH Time that You all FIX our roads and stop all this stupid patching work. We Pay high $ amounts to TCD every year to run our vehicles on these worthless roads.
    The patches make further bumps too! Only unkempt roads that were full of cracks are the ones with potholes. No holes around Ice Queen isn’t it! Because there are no cracks on that segment of road. Many people are sick and tired of this foolishness! What the heck are the high taxes for???
    You don’t take care of the people’s business. Worthless Ministry. Worthless Government.
    What do we have more of now? RATS or POTHOLES?
    Now look…. More ‘Tank Rain ‘ forecast the rest of this week! I will be laughing at our washboard roads again!!!
