Partial access to Wrightson Road due to construction work by NGC is expected to end this morning.
Yesterday, the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) advised that it will extend construction works on its project to divert a segment of its existing 16-inch low-pressure pipeline located on Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain.
NGC said the 16-inch pipeline project involves upgrading services of low-pressure customers by switching to a higher-pressure pipeline operating system.
It said yesterday the works continued on Monday, August 1 from 8 am to Tuesday August 2 until 4 am, which meant commuters will have partial access to Wrightson Road.
NGC in its statement said a comprehensive traffic management plan had been developed and the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) will be on hand to assist with traffic management throughout the project with the following considerations:
• During works on the western carriageway of Wrightson Road, police will redirect all incoming traffic to the eastern carriageway
• During works on the eastern carriageway of Wrightson Road, police will redirect all incoming traffic to the western carriageway
• Traffic cones will be utilised to clearly separate the lanes on the carriageways
• There will be advance notice/signs for commuters along Wrightson Road
NGC also sought to assure the public that all work will be conducted with safety as its highest priority and every effort will be made to minimise inconvenience to the public.
