Motorists were advised to avoid a section of Harbour Road in Paget while repairs are carried out at a private home between Valley Road and Highwood Lane.

A notice was issued by the Ministry of Public Works yesterday that said “house repairs and painting works will commence at Casa Rosa located at 102 Harbour Road, Paget”.

The lane closure will run from Saturday, March 5 to Sunday, March 20 from 9am to 4pm.

“The public is advised to avoid this section of Harbour Road, and are encouraged to use detour routes via Chapel Road and Lovers Lane.

“Traffic controls will be under direction of Loper’s Investment Haven representatives and will be managed through traffic control temporary signals and signage.”

Roadworks on Harbour Road subjected motorists to several months of disruption along Harbour Road earlier this year.

Work to repair a wall between Highwood Lane and Lover’s Lane started last June and was scheduled for completion by early August 2021 at a cost of $250,000, following a dispute with a landowner.

Another notice announced a partial road closure for Belco trenching work in Southampton.

Camp Hill, south of Middle Road, will be partly closed for Belco to link work from Middle Road to the Camp Hill substation.

“A road closure from the junction of Middle Road to the parking lot entrance of Sousa’s garden will need to be implemented in order to carry out the works,” the notice said.

The partial road closure will take place Monday, March 7, 2022 until approximately Monday, April 11, 2022.

“Working hours will be from 7:30am to 6:30pm daily.

“Traffic controls will be under direction of Intelligent Trenching representatives and will be managed through traffic control signals, signage and barricades.”

Motorists are advised to take alternative routes via Scenic Heights Pass and Khyber Pass.

“Vehicular access to Sousa’s garden centre will only be from the south side coming down on Camp Hill and by foot from Heron Bay MarketPlace parking lot.”

Detour routes will be signposted.

Both notices said: “The Ministry of Public Works wishes to encourage the full co-operation of the public and apologises for any inconvenience that may result.”
