Road works cause Bush Hall traffic diversion


Share post:

A CULVERT ALLEGEDLY damaged by the Barbados Water Authority has caused the normally busy Bush Hall, St Michael main road to be inaccessible to traffic. 

Since last week, the road has been closed as the Ministry of Transport and Works repair the culvert, diverting traffic around the area. 

“The BWA was doing excavation work and damaged a culvert so we had to replace it and that is ongoing,” said the MTW’s deputy chief technical officer Philip Tudor, adding the work should be completed by the end of the week, on March 17. 

In response, the authority’s corporate communications specialist Joy-Ann Haigh said they would investigate and determine what steps to take next. 

“The BWA will investigate the matter and if it turns out we are responsible, we will speak to the MTW to see how best we can work together to have the work expedited,” she said. (CA)
