The Ministry of Communications and Works is informing boat owners that the ramp at Burt Point has been temporarily removed, prohibiting boat access to the sea from that location.
The purpose of the ramp removal is to facilitate the implementation of the final stage of the Road Town sewerage force main connection line. The work is expected to be ongoing for four days, after which the boat ramp will be fully reinstated. The Ministry of Communications and Works apologises for the inconvenience caused and advises boat owners to access the sea at alternate locations.
