Bodden Town Road crash, 31 July 2018

(CNS): Police officers remain on the scene of a major crash between a truck and a car on Bodden Town Road, close to the junction of Anton Bodden Road, that happened this morning. Although no one was badly hurt, the police said it may take time for the road, which is now blocked, to be cleared. The collision happened at around 11:00 this morning, when a white Kenworth T800 truck and a white Mitsubishi Lancer smashed head-on while travelling in opposite directions.

Although this was a serious collision, the driver of the Mitsubishi sustained only minor injuries, which were treated by the EMS personnel on scene, and the driver of the dump truck escaped unscathed.

Bodden Town Road has been closed in the vicinity of the accident and traffic is being diverted onto Anton Bodden Drive. Heavy equipment has arrived to help clear the roadway, which will remain closed until the truck is unloaded and removed from the road.

    Near Anton Bodden Road??

    Its actually nearer to Condor Road, or Monument Road, or Cumber Ave, or Gun Square Road.

    Saying the accident is near Anton Bodden Road would make people who are trying to avoid the accident go the wrong way and up Bodden Town Road and they would run right up on it.

    Who wrote this article anyway??

    CNS: Here’s the official police report.

    6.00pm We are spending $40million plus on hooking up a few Brac households to desal water, and a lot of those that get it will probably stick to their pure rainwater cisterns rather than pay for water full of chemicals – that’s WASTE!.

    Dump trucks should be restricted from driving past the BT Police Station and up across Gun Square. They should all be required to use Anton Bodden dr. That GunSquare area is too narrow and one day it will be a person that gets hit by a truck.

    Don’t worry once Big Daddy Dart makes a play for North end he will fix a route to get there.

    There is a bypass its called Anton Bodden Rd. Large trucks should be forced to use it. I guess that wont happen until someone is killed.

      Anton Bodden Road was built as a Bodden Town Highway By-Pass to the eastern Districts. After the By-Pass road was built, it was riddled with numerous speed bumps so eastern districts traffic will not use it, it is now basically a local access road for the many residences that that has sprung up along both sides of the road. Basically we have duplicated the road that goes through Bodden Town, it’s called ‘ribbon development’. Who ever heard of speed bumps on a major through road.

    I have never seen a little car demolish a big dump truck and all the little car gets is black eye . Is that truck made of cardboard ?

    There was a huge chance to get BT into some manner of pedestrian order after Ivan when so many of those roadside walls were destroyed, none of them should have been given permission to have been rebuilt unless the correct setbacks were done to allow sidewalks, but as usual the parties that be dropped the ball.

    The bypass has to be done. God knows those of us who live in the eastern districts of NS and EE, cringe when maneuvering through the BT zombie run each morning.

      Oh they are only interested in the WB peninsula. To hell with the rest of the island.

      That piece of road is very dangerous. When will the Government act, and get the bypass done?!!! When we have a fatal accident?? Tourist take that route as well you know Moses, Joe, and Mr. Seymour.

      The truck drivers have just as much right to enjoy the ocean view on their commute as you do.

      Already exists. See other posts on this thread bemoaning the trucks not having to use the nice, wide, ‘bypass’ around the back of BT.

      Or, to put it a more Internet way: We built it, una didn’t use it, we’re not going to waste more money building more. 🙂
