Another major artery to Barbados' capital city Bridgetown was renderred impassable due to a burst water main today.
For the second time in less than a week, teams from the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) were called and deployed to urgently fix water mains after members of the Royal Barbados Police Force had to close another road. This time it was Constitution Road. Last week Thursday it was Halls Road.
Around 3.40pm, today, September 10, 2019, police reported, 'There is a burst water main along St. Michael's Row which has rendered the roadway impassable.
'The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) personnel are on-site and have estimated repairs will take at least five hours.'
On the BWA Instagram they shared an alert stating that 'Traffic will be diverted along Church Village from Constitution Road, while from Crumpton Street, motorists will be directed to travel east along Constitution Road.'
Police reminded drivers that they must comply with all signage and directives given by personnel deployed in that area.
