Road closures at Matelot and Poole Village

The Ministry of Works and Transport wishes to advise the public that there will be a temporary closure of the Paria Main Road, Matelot (71.5KM) on Friday 8th December, 2017 from 3PM. Thereafter, work will continue till Sunday 10th December, 2017 at 5PM which is the planned time of completion.

 This work has become necessary in order to facilitate the installation of a Mabey Bailey Bridge at the location.

 In light of the above, motorists are advised to comply with the following:-

  • No vehicles would be allowed beyond the 70.5km mark except for those associated with the exercise. This is necessary to facilitate the safe manoeuvring of equipment for planned site activities
  • Proceed with caution and observe all directional signs and barriers
  • Motorists should not enter the work zone limit
  • Comply with instructions from Police Officers on site to facilitate a safe and orderly flow of motor and pedestrian traffic
  • Be aware of heavy equipment entering and exiting the site

The bridge crossing at 4.80km Tableland Road, Poole Village (LP # A8), will be closed immediately due to the structural
failure of an abutment.

ALTERNATIVE ROUTES:
1. Tableland Road to Perry Road to Tableland 1st Branch Road
Or
2. Tableland 2nd Branch Road back to Tableland Road
In light of the above, motorists are advised to comply with the following:-

  • Proceed with caution
  • Observe all directional signs and barriers

The Ministry of Works and Transport regrets any inconvenience caused and thanks the public for its
continued cooperation.
