Work continues on Bodden Town water main

Motorists are reminded that water works are taking place along the main road in Bodden Town just past the Gun Square cannons.

The Water Authority noted in a press release that it is working on the second phase of a major project replacing the water main along Bodden Town Road which began on Monday, Jan. 18. These planned works are essential to upgrade the water infrastructure in the area so that the Authority can better serve its customers in Bodden Town, the company stated.

The project will affect Bodden Town Road from Gun Square Road to Manse Road and is expected to take approximately 10 weeks to complete. To facilitate the work, portions of the road will be restricted to the motoring public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, allowing for local access only.

All other traffic will be diverted around the work area by way of Anton Bodden Drive. Traffic signs are posted in the general vicinity and all motorists are asked to drive with caution to ensure their own safety as well as that of Water Authority staff.

Water supplies are not expected to be impacted; affected residences and businesses will be connected to a temporary service line to minimize interruptions in service while the pipeline project is under way.

The press release states that during this time the Water Authority is working to ensure access to local businesses is maintained throughout the project, with as little negative impact on its customers as possible and with the intention to complete the work in a timely manner.

The Authority thanked the local businesses and their patrons affected by these planned works for their patience.
