Ministry of Public Works Repair Potholes at Collector’s Hill

The Ministry of Public Works continues to make progress in addressing concerns over the state of Bermuda’s roads, particularly the potholes that have been problematic for residents and motorists alike.


In a step towards remedying this issue, the Highways team successfully conducted repairs on Friday at the junction between Collector’s Hill and South Road in Smith’s, a spot notably plagued by numerous potholes and the subject of many complaints received through our dedicated email,


However, it is important to note that the repairs made at the Collector’s Hill junction, shown in the attached images, serve as a temporary measure. A comprehensive road paving operation will have to commence to address these issues more permanently.


The Ministry wishes to advise the public that, due to the recent and forecasted continuous rain across the Island until at least the middle of this week, there is a heightened risk that the newly repaired potholes may deteriorate.


Rainfall presents a significant challenge to pothole repair efforts, as the Highways team cannot perform repairs under wet conditions. Motorists are urged to exercise additional caution when navigating the roads during this period.


In light of these challenges, it is crucial for the community to understand that the resumption of pothole repairs across the Island will occur as soon as weather conditions permit.


The Ministry is focused on improving the safety and integrity of Bermuda’s road infrastructure and appreciates the public’s patience and cooperation.


The Minister of Public Works, Lt. Col. the Hon. David A. Burch, OBE (Mil), ED, JP, MP, has expressed his understanding and concern regarding the public’s frustration with the pothole issue, stating, “We are fully aware of the inconvenience and potential hazards posed by potholes, especially during this rainy season.


“Our teams are poised to continue their repair work as soon as the weather clears. Our overriding concern is your safety, and we thank you for your understanding as we navigate these challenges together.”


The Ministry of Public Works encourages residents to report any new pothole issues to
