Lower & Upper Broad Street to be milled and paved

April 22, 2024

A team from Infra Construction Inc. will begin milling and paving Lower Broad Street to Upper Broad Street from Friday, April 26 to Wednesday, May 1.

Ministry of Transport and Works says work will be done over the National Heroes’ Day weekend through to May Day to minimise disruption.

The road repairs will start at the intersection of Prince Alfred Street and Lower Broad Street and end on Upper Broad Street next to the Treasury Building.

As a result, Lower Broad Street to Upper Broad Street will be closed to traffic on:

  • Friday, April 26, from 8:00 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.
  • Saturday, April 27, from 8:00 p.m. straight through until Tuesday, April 30, at 6:30 a.m.
  • The road will be open during the day on Tuesday, but will close again at 8:00 p.m., and will remain closed on Wednesday, May 1.

MTW says Lower Broad Street to Upper Broad Street will reopen on Thursday, May 2 at 8:00 a.m., pending weather and any unforeseen circumstances.

However, pedestrians will still be able to assess the sidewalks while the road work is being carried out.

Additionally, due to the work on Broad Street, there will be closures or diversions on several other streets.

These include:

  • Traffic on Tudor Street will be diverted onto Reed Street or Sobers Lane.
  • Shepherd Street, Parry Street, and McGregor Street will be closed. Traffic will continue along Wharf Road.
  • Prince Alfred Street will be closed at the intersection with Hincks Street, motorists will continue on Hincks Street.
  • St. George Street and Chapel Street will be closed; traffic will divert onto Cowell Street.

Transport Board buses coming from the north of the island to Baxters Road after 9:00 p.m., will be diverted to Passage Road to White Park Road, Magazine Lane, and continue onto the Granville Williams Bus Terminal.

The White Hill, Cave Hill/Grazettes, and Holders Hill buses leaving Princess Alice Terminal will travel via Cheapside to St. Mary’s Row onto Mason Hall Street and Baxters Road to continue along their journey.

Additionally, taxi drivers who use Lower and Upper Broad Street will be allowed to park on Nile Street and in the Treasury Building’s car parking spaces on Wharf Road during construction only.

Motorists are advised to plan their routes accordingly as the road work is being carried out.

MTW and Infra Construction Inc. thank the public for their understanding and cooperation.
