Traffic Diversion Plan for Western Main Road Cocorite, in the Vicinity of Westshore Medical

The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) advises customers in St. James/Cocorite and environs that there will be a disruption in their water supply from 7:00 p.m. on Saturday 25th June to 12:00 noon on Sunday 26th June, 2022. This is in order to facilitate repairs to a leaking 21 inch diameter transmission pipeline, along the Western Main Road, Cocorite, in the vicinity of West Shore Medical Private Hospital.

Areas affected include:

  • St James
  • Cocorite
  • Powder Magazine

Customers are advised that it may take up to 12 hours for the pipe borne water supply to normalize to some affected areas following the completion of these repair works.

Motorists are advised that during the course of the repair works, traffic along the westbound lane will be diverted onto the eastbound lane from approx. 100m East of the walkover at the Community Hospital. Motorists will proceed West on the eastbound lane to the opening in front of Power Magazine and then back onto the westbound lane. Motorists who usually use the opening at Powder Magazine, will be required to proceed North to Diego Martin Main Road, up to Four Road intersection and unto their destination.

Motorists are further advised to proceed with caution and to obey the traffic signs and instructions of the Traffic Control Officers on duty in the vicinity of the jobsite. Provisions will be made for access to local traffic within the restricted area.
