WASA to complete repairs in Port-of-Spain by 2pm

The Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) says it has been met with a further delay in the completion of works to relocate two transmission mains along the Beetham Highway between the lighthouse and Abattoir Road, and that work is to be completed by 2 pm Monday.

It said that affected customers in Port of Spain and environs are advised that it may take up to 24 hours for the scheduled pipe-borne water supply to normalize to some affected areas after the works have been completed.

WASA added that a limited truck-borne supply is available with priority given to schools, medical institutions and homes for the aged.

Motorists are being advised that while the westbound carriageway of the Beetham Highway between the lighthouse and Abattoir Road was re-established to three lanes during Monday morning, only one lane will be open to traffic along the East-Bound Carriageway with the full restoration of three lanes scheduled for 2 pm today.

Where possible, motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes including the Lady Young Road or South Quay to by-pass the work site to avoid traffic delays.
