UPDATE: Traffic Advisory: Harbour Drive Re-Opened, 8 October

8th October, 2020 Police Headlines

UPDATE (8 October - 7:45AM):

Harbour Drive has now fully re-opened to traffic. Cleaning of the roadway is in progress and wave action in the area continues. The public is therefore advised to exercise caution, and proper driving etiquette, when travelling in the area.


UPDATE (7 October - 8:20PM):

UPDATE: Due to an increase in wave action along the waterfront, a section of Harbour Drive has once again been closed to traffic. Traffic diversions are now in place at the junctions of Harbour Drive at Goring Avenue, and Harbour Drive at Fort Street.

 

The RCIPS and NRA will continue to monitor road conditions overnight, and will reopen the roadway when it is safe to do so.


UPDATE (7 October - 5:20PM):

Harbour Drive has now fully re-opened to allow improved traffic flow. However, wave activity continues along a small portion of Harbour Drive, between Goring Avenue and Cardinall Avenue, with some seawater washing onto the roadway.  The public is advised to exercise caution when travelling in this area, and to take an alternate route if possible.  


UPDATE (7 October - 10:20AM):

Portions of the roadway have now been re-opened, with the junctions at Boilers Road and Mary Street now open to traffic. However, Harbour Drive remains closed between Cardinall Avenue and Fort Street.

 

The re-opening will continue in sections, as crews clear debris from the roadway.

 

Further traffic diversions may become necessary depending on changes in marine conditions. The RCIPS will continue to monitor weather conditions throughout the day, and will advise of any additional diversions.  


Update (7 October - 6:45AM):

Due to continued wave activity and the presence of debris on the roadway, Harbour Drive and North Church Street remain closed between Boilers Road and Mary Street (see further info below). Persons travelling in the area are advised to take an alternate route.

 

A further update will follow once the roadway has been cleared and re-opened.


Initial Release (6 October):

Due to the current weather conditions and wave activity on the George Town Waterfront, caused by the passage of Hurricane Delta, sections of the roadway along Harbour Drive, and North Church Street have been closed.

 

There are traffic diversions at the junction of Boilers Road and Harbour Drive.  

 

Traffic is also diverted at the junction of Mary Street and North Church Street.

 

In addition, the junction at Shedden Road and Elgin Avenue is closed to traffic heading towards Harbour Drive.

 

The RCIPS is advising persons to stay away from shoreline areas, and if they must travel for essential reasons to use alternate routes that avoid shoreline areas.

 

A further advisory will be issued once the roads have been re-opened.
