Traffic alert: Road works in Cocorite
Reports have been received of traffic building up along the Western Main Road due to what appears to be road repair works near Cocorite.
According to initial reports, the works appear to be taking place near the Cocorite walkover, on the Westbound lane of the Western Main Road.
Traffic appears to have built up as far as the Movietowne building and drivers are urged to delay travel or seek alternative routes if possible.
On Saturday, September 21, 2019, road works being done along the eastbound lane of the Western Main Road resulted in heavy traffic after a water main was damaged during the milling and paving works.
The traffic resulted in gridlock for drivers heading east out of Diego Martin and Carenage.
Drivers are advised to check with the Ministry of Works and Transport's social media pages and/or NIDCO ahead of travel to be informed of any travel delays or road works.
