A statement from the Ministry of Works and Transport said there is a depression in the middle lane before the lighthouse, heading westbound into Port of Spain.
As a result, motorists are advised to use alternative routes if possible as there may be a back-up of traffic in this area.
Speaking with News Power Now during the live broadcast of the News at Noon, Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan said an 8” underground WASA main ruptured.
Sinanan said WASA will deploy a team tonight to have the line repaired, during the traffic’s down time.
The Ministry said it has contacted the relevant authorities to assist in returning the lane to its normal operation in the shortest amount of time.
Corporate Communications Manager at the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA), Daniel Plenty, said that teams are heading to the site to begin repairs.
