Simpson Bay Lagoon Authority Corporation Managing Director Russell Voges, announced on Wednesday that repair works at the bridge should be completed over the weekend and that regular opening for maritime traffic is anticipated on Sunday, August 30.
There was a special opening on Wednesday where the Coast Guard vessel Poema left port as well as a dredge.
Sunday openings will be 9.30am, 11.30am and 5.30pm.
If bridge maintenance activities are completed earlier than scheduled, the bridge will open earlier than Sunday, however this will be announced.
Motorists are advised that they should carefully observe the traffic lights that have been installed for the bridge openings. Cars are required to stop as soon as the green light jumps to yellow.
The maintenance repair work at the bridge entails rewiring of the electrical system and the installation of new traffic barriers.
Boat owners and captains were informed several weeks ago about the two-week closure of the bridge in order to facilitate the necessary maintenance repairs. These repairs started on August 17.
All the repairs to the Simpson Bay Bridge are based on the recommendations made by Rijkswaterstaat, the Dutch Authority for Waterworks and Bridges.
