The public is advised that Great Mountain road will be closed to ongoing traffic commencing Monday, January 11 for a period of approximately four weeks. As works progress on the Great Mountain road rehabilitation (site closest to Huntum’s Ghut) this road closure will be required to facilitate the installation of the culvert.

Residents living within the road closure designated area will have access to their properties. Site personnel will be on location to inform residents about road access procedures.

During this time motorists will be required to use these alternate routes to enter Road Town or to access the upper Great Mountain area.

  • Traffic coming from upper Great Mountain, Brewer’s Bay and Spooner’s Estate can turn left onto the Ridge Road and head into Road Town via the exit for Johnson’s Ghut/Purcell or continue to Belle Vue and head down Fort Hill into Road Town. Alternately, motorists can access Road Town via Joe’s Hill. 
  • Traffic heading out of Road Town can access upper Great Mountain and environs via Joe’s Hill, Purcell/Johnson’s Ghut road or Fort Hill, Belle Vue and the Ridge Road.
  • Traffic coming from Cane Garden and Carrot Bay through Windy Hill will be alerted at the Ridge Road and Joe’s Hill intersection about the Great Mountain road closure and would be diverted as necessary onto Joe’s Hill Road.
