Major bridge and road works between the Eastern Main Road at Morvant Junction and the Priority Bus Route will result in temporary traffic disruption for several months.

The bridge and road works began on Thursday 6 August 2020 and are expected to be complete by Tuesday 6 July 2021.

According to an advisory release by the Ministry of Works and Transport, the traffic disruption has become necessary to facilitate Bridge Reconstruction works, in the Ministry’s Morvant to Maritime Upgrade Project (Package 2).

The Ministry also advises that bridge works will be carried out during the day, between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm; while road works will occur at night, from 8:00 pm to 4:00 am.

The Ministry is therefore urging the public and motorists to comply with the following:

●  Proceed with caution and observe all directional signs and barriers

●  Motorists should drive at a reduced speed on approaching the work zone

●  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
