NO MORE EXCUSE! Baillou Hill Road is oneway!


Roadworks in the Robinson Road section of New Providence have been shut down once again and is being dug up after being paved for a third time. Someone is bleeding the treasury on this POORLY MANAGED ROAD PROGRAMME!

Nassau, Bahamas – The Ministry of Public Works and Transport announces that from Vesey to Cockburn Streets on Baillou Hill Road has been paved and Baillou Hill Road from Wulff Road heading north toward St. Agnes Anglican Church is open to two lanes of NORTHBOUND TRAFFIC ONLY. The Ministry requests motorists to follow posted road signs particularly those prohibiting southbound movements on Baillou Hill Road.

The Ministry provided an update on the progress of construction on corridors in the New Providence Road Improvement Project during a briefing Wednesday.

“The public is advised that in approximately two to three weeks paving will take place between Cockburn Street and School Lane. At this time both the Dillett Street (Meeting Street) and School Lane junction will be re-opened to traffic,” said Shenique Albury, environmental specialist in the Project Execution Unit.

The contractor is currently installing drainage and service laterals between School Lane and Duke Street, which is the northern limit of this corridor, said Ms. Albury. “ It is anticipated that prior to the Christmas season northbound traffic only will be allowed up to Duke Street on Baillou Hill Road,” she added.

On Saturday, November 5, the junction of Baillou Hill/Wulff Roads, along with Baillou Hill Road between Baker Street and the Wulff Road junction will be closed to allow final asphalt paving works. Motorists should follow the diversion signs. This closure is expected to last for one day

Work continues on Market Street south with focus on the junction of Market Street and Robinson Road.  In three weeks this junction is expected to be paved and opened to traffic.  Sidewalks and kerbing are presently being installed in areas that have already been paved on Market Street south. Traffic signals are also being installed at several junctions.

Roadworks are also taking place on Market Street north between Wulff Road and Brougham Street where drainage and service laterals are being installed.

Efforts have increased to complete the construction of the roundabout at Independence Drive. “Work on the approaches to the roundabout and the outside lane is currently taking place. Paving in these areas will take place next week after which work will begin on the inner lane of the roundabout,” said Ms. Albury.  It is expected that the entire roundabout will be completed by the end of the third week in November.

The Ministry thanks the public for its cooperation and continued patience during road construction works and apologises for any inconvenience caused as they seek to build and improve the infrastructure and transportation network on the island of New Providence.  The Ministry encourages all road users to exercise caution and to follow the diversion signs in place especially while driving in areas of active construction.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the issue is something that not sufficient individuals are talking intelligently about. I am very completely satisfied that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something relating to this.

  2. The Tribune has revealed that top United Kingdom executives of CWC are BOASTING how the acquisition of BTC has caused a 100% INCREASE to its bottom line.The top officials also disclosed that CWC paid 204 million dollars for BTC not the 210 million dollars the government claimed it was paid.The executives were giddy with excitement to disclose that on purchasing BTC they found 59 MILLION DOLLARS IN THE BANK.Remember the Prime Minister said the government would only leave 15 million dollars for the new owners to use as working capital.So if you subtract the 59 million from the204 million THAT WAS PAID,CWC ONLY ACTUALLY PAID 145 MILLION DOLLARS FOR BTC!!!Finally CWC admitted that they are USING BTC’S FUNDS TO TERMINATE BAHAMIANS!!!Boy,in the past i believed our prime minister was BIPOLAR but now i KNOW the prime minister is a FOOL!!!

    • The Damn problem with the road change on blue hill North is that there are no fu*king signs. Its a shame. Everyone is lost and combine that with the fact that some of those roads are still closed. It is so difficult just to get from Market Street to Hospital lane. You would have a easier time walking and taking your chances with the robbers in the area (lol)
