Motorists were advised of more Belco trench work, due to start next Tuesday (Aug 16) on North Shore Road between the Loyal Hill playground entrance and Loyal Hill Road in Devonshire.

Through traffic will be closed to drivers, with the exception of area residents, during the job, which will run through to September 9.

Traffic will be directed away from the dig, at Barkers Hill or Store Hill and a single lane will be open on North Shore Road as the digging continues from Loyal Hill Road to Store Hill Road from September 10 to November 4.

Work on both projects will start at 7am and run to 6pm throughout the week.

Belco staff will be directing traffic and drivers are encouraged to use Barkers Hill or Store Hill to Middle Road as a detour.

Belco’s Project Manager, Jonathan Pedro will take questions regarding the trenching project on 295-5111, extension 1441.

Questions on detours should be directed to Tina Beer-Searle, Acting Principal Highways Engineer, on 501-3044.
