The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) advises that work to replace the mains in Bridgefield, St. Thomas is still in ongoing. This phase of the works is scheduled to restart on Thursday, April 18th, between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm and to continue over the next two weeks Monday to Friday only.

During this period, mains will be replaced in the vicinity of the Lester Vaughn School and work may impact residents of Platinum Avenue, Primrose Avenue, Sunflower Drive, the Gabriel Edgehill Funeral Home and the surrounding areas.

Motorists traversing the area should expect traffic delays due to ongoing work and are advised to consider taking an alternative route. The BWA also asks all persons using these roads to obey the flag men and safety signs around the job site.

It is possible that residents may be affected by the noise and dust produced during trenching. No water supply disruption is expected for the residents in the area until the final distribution system connections are completed.

The Barbados Water Authority apologises for the inconvenience and thanks residents for their understanding and cooperation as work continues to upgrade the mains in the area.
