Road closures in GT from Monday

Vehicles travelling along South
Church Street in George Town will be diverted on week days, starting Monday, 18
October, due to the replacement of water pipes in the area.

A Water Authority Company
spokeswoman said the section of road from Ugland House to Memorial Avenue in
George Town will be closed from 9am to 4pm from Monday to Friday until further

Only residents and people working
in or visiting businesses in that area will be allowed access. All other
traffic will be diverted onto Walkers Road via Boilers Road or Memorial Avenue.

“The Water Authority apologises in
advance for any inconvenience caused and wishes to thank the public for its
understanding as they continue to make service improvements,” the company
stated in an announcement of the road closures.

The company is replacing an 8-inch
diameter pipeline with a 12-inch pipeline along Harbour Drive and South Church
Street as far as Denham Thompson Way. The work, which is being done in four
phases – each lasting six weeks- began in August and is expected to continue
until February.


  1. If the pipes had been installed right the first time, us drivers wouldn’t have to avoid the numerous holes and rippled roads caused by broked water pipes. I, for one, appreciate the work NRA do and get vexed when the Water Authority come along weeks later to dig up a new road.
