Works Ministry starts highway repair

The Min­istry of Works and Trans­port has start­ed re­pair work on var­i­ous parts of the Uri­ah But­ler High­way which were dam­aged by the week­end’s dev­as­tat­ing flood­ing.

Both lanes were re­opened to traf­fic hours ago af­ter min­istry of­fi­cials de­ter­mined flood wa­ters on the south­bound lane had re­ced­ed suf­fi­cient­ly.

Po­lice had ini­tial­ly on­ly al­lowed SU­Vs and pick­ups to use the south­bound lane dur­ing rush hour traf­fic this morn­ing as there was still a lit­tle wa­ter be­tween the Ca­roni Bridge and Munroe Road as well as struc­tur­al dam­age to the road­way.

The north­bound lane re­mained a dual car­riage­way dur­ing that pe­ri­od.
