Rainfall over the past 24 hours in the Belles area has significantly affected the roadway.
Motorists and residents have reported that the area poses extreme danger as the sections are sinking and a landslide left debris strewn along the Dr. Nicholas Liverpool Highway.
In that regard, the Ministry of Public Works and Ports wishes to advise the general public of the closure of the road in the vicinity of the primary school of the Belles area with immediate effect.
Local access will be permitted only as far as the school, therefore, all traffic intending to go beyond Belles – especially traffic going to or coming from the Douglas-Charles Airport should access the Portsmouth route or the Pont Casse on to Castle Bruce and through the Kalinago Territory route.
Safety and direction signs, signals and barriers will be erected for the public’s safety. Please refrain from defacing, destroying, removing or tampering with these signs.
Please be guided accordingly.
The Ministry apologizes for any inconvenience caused.
