Inclement weather pushed back the planned weekend clean-up project planned by the Ministry of Public Works.

As a result, work at Black Watch Pass in Pembroke to remove vegetation off the cliff face will start next weekend.

The Ministry has issued an advisory for the motoring and pedestrian public that Black Watch Pass will need to be closed only on weekends, starting Saturday, January 21 and the following weekend on January 29.

A spokesman said: “Traffic controls will be under the direction of Ministry of Public Works representatives and will be managed with road closure from 7am until 5pm on weekends.

“Motorists and pedestrians are advised to use alternative routes via North Shore or Marsh Folly Road during the road closure.

“There will be no access granted for pedestrians during this road closure due to the anticipation of the ongoing falling debris.

“The Ministry of Public Works wishes to encourage the full cooperation of the public and apologizes for any inconvenience that may result.

“Should there be any questions regarding the road closure, please direct queries to Ministry of Public Works, Construction and Maintenance Engineer, Curtis Charles on 501-3036.”
