Bridgetown traffic flow returning to normal
Barbados Tourism Investment Inc. (BTI) said today there will be gradual restoration of the normal traffic flow in Bridgetown over the next 24 hours.
Full restoration will be in effect from Friday, March 13, at 6 a.m.
This follows completion of the demolition of the old National Insurance Scheme (NIS) building on Fairchild Street, The City, which was reduced to rubble on Monday.
Prior to that, the headquarters of the Barbados Fire Service on Probyn Street, and the temporary market on Jordans Lane, were demolished as part of Government’s Bridgetown Transformation Project.
Their removal will make way for the Golden Square Freedom Park, which is expected to be completed in July.
Motorists are urged to comply with instructions from members of the Royal Barbados Police Force, who will be directing traffic during the removal of the hoarding, temporary roundabouts and signs.
BTI thanks the public for the continued cooperation and apologises for any inconvenience caused. (BGIS/KG)
