The Ministry of Public Works headed up by Craig Cannonier, announced today that Black Watch Pass has been reopened to traffic and pedestrians.

The roadway reopened at 9am this morning, but a spokeswoman said more work following the rock scaling and rock face stabilization project will continue.

A spokeswoman thanked the public for their patience, and noted that “although the road is now open, there will still be ongoing fencing work and ‘shotcreting’ taking place there over the next few weeks”.

She also issued the following advisory on more road works due to start this weekend:

  • On Sunday 4th June there will be minor delays on both Rural Hill Paget and also on Pitts Bay Road Pembroke between Bermudiana Road and Waterloo Lane to allow for road markings to be placed.
  • On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 5th, 6th and 7th June there will be a possible one lane closure along North Shore Road Pembroke between Glebe Road and Band Room Lane during off-peak times, to accommodate resurfacing works.
  • On Thursday and Friday 8th and 9th June there will be a possible one lane closure along Marsh Folly Road between Dutton Avenue and Bishop Spencer Road during off-peak times, to accommodate resurfacing works.

It should be noted that these works are weather dependent.
