Welfare drainage road-works begin Tuesday night

POSTED: 02/14/12 3:52 PM

St. Maarten – Three drainage road crossings will be installed on the Welfare road, Cole Bay starting at 8:00 p.m. Tuesday. The three drainage road crossings will be installed between Cole Bay Round-a-bout and Marshall Motors. The road will not be closed to traffic, but will function as a one-way during the infrastructure works and alternating between directions.

The works, which will be carried out throughout the night until the work is completed, will address water that is constantly running on the public road at several locations in Cole Bay. Those areas were not hooked up initially due to other buildings in the area that needed to be hooked up to the drainage system.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution when approaching the area between the Cole Bay Round-a-bout and Marshall Motors. In order to facilitate the movement of traffic, various traffic signs will be set up and motorists are requested to pay attention when transiting through the area.

Motorists are also recommended to use the Orange Grove Road if coming from Philipsburg and heading in the direction of Simpson Bay and Maho Reef which would facilitate a quicker transit.

The Ministry of Public Housing, Spatial Planning, Environment and Infrastructure, apologizes for any inconvenience that the infrastructure works may cause.
