The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) will conduct a Condition Assessment of the sewer network along Worthing, Christ Church from tonight 10:00 p.m. Thursday, July 26 until 5:00 a.m. tomorrow, Friday, July 27th. As a result of the extensive investigation, which is critical to the resolution of the south coast sewage crisis, traffic diversions will occur.
The public is therefore advised that the stretch from Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary to the old Scotia Bank building will be closed. Vehicular traffic travelling eastwards along Highway 7 should divert at the junction of Highway 7 and Rendezvous Road and proceed along Rendezvous Road and re-join Highway7 via the ABC Highway and Top Rock.
Likewise, traffic travelling in a westerly direction is advised to divert at Top Rock roundabout and re-join Highway 7 via the Rendezvous Road.
Local access from the east will be allowed between Top Rock Roundabout and the Worthing Beach Facility and from the west, between the Esso Service Station and the Chicken Barn building. Traffic wardens will be deployed to assist the public with the diversions.
This assessment will be done by the BWA in collaboration with energy personnel from the Ministry of Energy and Water Resources. A specialist from overseas will also assist with the investigation.
The team will be conducting a non-invasive geophysical survey within the area of the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary and the old Scotiabank building, using ground penetrating radar equipment.
Motorists and pedestrians should make every effort to avoid this area. The BWA sincerely apologises for any inconvenience.
