Persons using the Southern Main Road in La Brea can expect a temporary traffic disruption over the next couple of weeks, as the Ministry of Works and Transport carries out Road Rehabilitation works.

The disruption will be along the Southern Main Road, from the Pitch Lake in La Brea to Nurse Street in Cap de Ville, and begins today, Sunday 8th August 2021.  The Ministry’s advisory says the rehabilitative road works should wrap up by Friday 20th August 2021.

The advisory notes that day works will be carried out during the hours of 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, while nightworks will run from 9:00pm to 4:00 am.

■   Comply with instructions from Police Officers on site to facilitate a safe and orderly flow of traffic.

■   Be aware of heavy equipment entering and exiting the site.

■   Drive with caution on all milled (possibly uneven) surfaces.
