Public Advisory: Swing Bridge, St. George’s [Updated]

Tue, 2022-08-30

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) is advising the public – motorists in particular – to expect delays at the Swing Bridge in St. George’s and if possible, to avoid using it, until further notice.

Apparently some electrical wires have come down across the bridge, causing normal traffic flow along the span to be affected. The cause of the downed wires is not known.

It is unclear at this time if any of the wires involved are live. BELCO has been notified and are en route. Police officers are currently on scene assisting with traffic management.

The BPS appreciates the patience and understanding of the motoring public and area residents while this situation is addressed. Our main concern is safety.

A further update is anticipated in due course.

Update: The Bermuda Police Service can now confirm that normal traffic flow has resumed across the Swing Bridge in St. George’s. We are grateful for the assistance of BELCO in resolving this issue, as well as the patience of the motoring public and area residents.
