Ministry of Public Works Advances Road Improvement Projects Across the Island

South Shore

“Our mission to enhance and improve Bermuda’s infrastructure is well underway. We are focused on maintaining our roadways and ensuring they meet the high standards our community deserves,” said the Minister of Public Works, Lt. Col. the Hon. David A. Burch, OBE (Mil), ED, JP, MP, in providing an update on the ongoing roadworks and infrastructure upgrades. 

Reflecting on the commitments announced in the 2023 Throne Speech and 2024/25 Budget presentation, the Minister said that he is pleased with the progress being made to address Bermuda’s infrastructure challenges.

Minister Burch said, “Infrastructure investment and improvement are hallmark pledges of the Government’s 2023 Throne Speech. The recent roadworks, including the ongoing paving projects near the Henry VIII restaurant, will extend to the entrance to Fairmont Southampton. And we are very satisfied with the completed paving of Watford Bridge. 

“These two projects demonstrate our consistent efforts to fix our infrastructure. Additionally, the Ministry remains dedicated to ongoing pothole repairs by addressing areas in need promptly to ensure the safety and satisfaction of all road users.

“We expect weather to be more conducive as the weeks and months progress and with this, the community can expect to see an acceleration in our roadworks maintenance.”

The Minister confirmed that the next area to be addressed will be South Road at Collectors Hill junction. 

The Ministry will provide further outlined plans to address more areas in the coming weeks and months.
