Roadworks At Robinson Road and East Street Junction
Nassau, The Bahamas – Robinson Road from Key West Street to the junction at East Street remains under full closure as roadworks continue on this corridor. “We’re working towards completing this area in totality. We’re connecting to water mains and preparing to install four utility service ducts, said Ministry of Public Works project engineer Charlene Collie. “The intention is to complete the works from beginning to end.”
Other works to be carried out include installation of signage and road markings. “We’re asking the general public and business owners to bear with us while we try to complete these works as quickly as possible. On the eastern end of Robinson Road (from Claridge Road to Miami Street) under full closure we were able to complete the works in a shorter time rather than with traffic moving at all times. The full closure is to maximise the safety of the motoring public, pedestrians and workers.”
Traffic diversions are in place. Motorists are advised to use the Independence High Way to Baillou Hill Road, 8th Street to East Street or continue to Baillou Hill Road travelling north and Independence travelling east to Marathon Road (using Robinson Road). Access to local businesses and residents will be provided. Motorists should expect to see more closures in the Robinson Road area as work progresses west towards Baillou Hill Road.
