WASA: More delays to Beetham Highway road works

The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) is advising of a further delay in the completion of works to relocate two transmission mains along the Beetham Highway between the Lighthouse and Abattoir Road, near the PTSC compound.

WASA said though the substantive work on the two transmission mains has been completed, final civil work is ongoing and is to be completed by 2:00 pm on Monday, May 27.

Affected customers in Port-of-Spain and environs are advised that it may take up to 24 hours for the scheduled pipe borne water supply to normalize to some affected areas after the works have been completed. A limited truck-borne supply is available with priority given to schools, medical institutions and homes for the aged.

TRAFFIC DIVERSION

Motorists are advised that while the West-Bound Carriageway of the Beetham Highway between the Lighthouse and Abattoir Road will be re-established to three lanes on Mondayonly one lane will be open to traffic along the East-Bound Carriageway with the full restoration of three lanes scheduled for 2:00 pm today.

ALTERNATIVE ROUTES

Where possible, motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes including the Lady Young Road or South Quay to by-pass the work site to avoid traffic delays.

Motorists are also asked to proceed with caution in the vicinity of the job site and obey the instructions of police officers on duty. For further information or assistance, customers can contact WASA’s Customer Call Centre toll-free at 800-4420/4426.
