The Minister of Public Works, the Hon. Trevor Moniz, JP, MP, today advised that work continues on Heritage Wharf with much progress being made over the past week.
"The Government of Bermuda was pleased to be in a position where we could welcome the Norwegian Breakaway alongside Heritage Wharf for her maiden voyage," said Minister Moniz. "At the time of its arrival the works to the southern breasting dolphin were complete bar the attachment of fenders and bollards and removal of the temporary support structures.
"The works to the northern breasting dolphin, as reported in our previous update, were not quite complete. Even up to the last few days we were hoping to have completed the concrete pours, however heavy winds prevented us from placing the forms in a safe manner so it was decided that it would be sensible to complete these works in the coming week. However, we are pleased to report that they have now been completed safely, the final pour having taken place overnight on Tuesday while the ships rotated their stay."

The road was reopened after more than a decade of closure. During this time it was cited as a major public safety hazard and an inconvenience for the residents in the area.
The Ministry of Public Safety formally announced the reopening of the area today.
The Minister of Public Works, the Hon. Trevor Moniz, JP MP, today announced that Devon Spring Road, 63 South Road, Devonshire, is now officially re-opened to traffic with the completion of the new retaining wall.
"The primary objective of this project was to make the wall safe for residents and the public and then re-open the road to traffic," Minister Moniz said. "The public and the community can now be assured that this objective has been achieved."
The Minister said that residents have been looking forward to the re-opening of Devon Spring Road and have patiently awaited the construction of the wall.
