Closure of Pedestrian Crossings along Wrightson Road, Port of Spain


The Ministry of Works and Transport wishes to advise the public that the Pedestrian crossings located at Dock Road, Port of Spain, and the intersection of the Wig-Wag lights between London Street and Dock Road, Port of Spain will be permanently closed effective 20th August, 2022. These changes will allow for improved mobility and safety measures for pedestrians and drivers along Wrightson Road.
The Ministry takes this opportunity to remind pedestrians of the adjacent Water Taxi Pedestrian Bridge which is located 170 meters west of Dock Road. This Pedestrian Bridge was designed to reduce the incidents of road conflicts where pedestrians were required  to cross six (6) lanes of highly congested roadway that also carry a high volume of freight vehicles. Since completed, the Pedestrian Bridge has reduced travel times along Wrightson Road.
In light of the above, pedestrians are asked to utilize the overpass and should observe all appropriate signage and barriers in the vicinity.
The Ministry of Works and Transport regrets any inconvenience caused and thanks the public for its continued cooperation.
Road Safety is everyone’s priority. For further information, please visit the Ministry of Works and Transport’s Website ( or email the Traffic Management Branch at
