News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – The Ministry of Public Works is issuing an advisory to all motorists in light of the heavy rainfall that has resulted in some damage to roads across the island.
We urge everyone to exercise utmost caution and adhere to road safety guidelines during the inclement weather.
Our dedicated teams are working diligently to assess and address the damages as quickly as possible. However, until the necessary repairs are completed, it is crucial that drivers remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to ensure their safety and the safety of others.
We kindly request all motorists to:
* Reduce speed: Decrease your speed to adapt to the wet and slippery road conditions. This will allow you to maintain better control of your vehicle.
* Increase following distance: Leave ample space between your vehicle and the one in front of you. This extra distance will provide additional time to react to any sudden changes or potential hazards on the road.
The Ministry is committed to swiftly addressing the road damages and ensuring the safety of all road users. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time.
For updates on road conditions, please visit the Government of Bermuda news page or the Government of Bermuda social media channels.
Stay safe and drive responsibly.
