The Ministry of Infrastructure Development & Housing informs the public that two locations along the Coastal Highway, namely, Quamina Bridge and Big Creek Bridge, were inundated by intense rainfall. This resulted in some delays for motorists using the Coastal Highway.
Construction works on the Coastal Highway are ongoing, with at least 12 months remaining under the contract. To facilitate construction of the bridges, roadside drains were intentionally blocked in an effort to dewater the bridge construction site, causing both areas to be inundated. Water has receded as the drains are now temporarily opened to release floodwaters.
The Ministry of Infrastructure Development & Housing requests that motorists exercise due care and attention when traversing the 56 km of highway as several locations remain under construction.
