GREAT BAY (DCOMM):—Ministry of Public Housing, Environment, Spatial Development and Infrastructure (Ministry VROMI), announces that there will be a partial and complete road closure of the G.A. Arnell road (behind the St. Maarten Medical Center). This is in connection with NV GEBE laying of high-tension cables.
On Thursday, December 1, one lane coming up the A.G. Arnell Boulevard from Belair, will be closed to vehicular traffic from 9.00AM to 7.00PM.
Complete road closure will be on December 2 and 3 for the A.G. Arnell road between 7.00PM and 10.00AM. Only emergency vehicles will be allowed.
The works will continue until December 15. All motorized traffic coming from Belair/Philipsburg has to stay on Welgelegen road (vicinity of the hospital) and continue to AJC Brouwers road towards Philipsburg.
The project entails the removal of a section of the sidewalk behind the guardrail, road crossing, and trench works.
Road works will be carried out by Windward Roads.
Motorists and pedestrians in the area should pay keen attention when commuting as heavy equipment will be in use. Pay attention to traffic diversion signs and workmen who will be present to help direct the flow of traffic.
Ministry VROMI apologizes for any inconveniences this may cause.
