CONTRACTOR for the geometric improvement of the Vlissengen Road project, Vieira 66 Logistics, has been working overtime to complete the project on time.

This was disclosed by Ministry of Public Works’ Manager of Traffic, Safety and Maintenance, Kester Hinds.
Hinds said due to the inclement weather, contractors are working until 22:00 hrs as the aim is to complete the project by the end of the year. He said the bad weather has been interfering with the casting of the drains.

To date, the $42.6 million project which will improve access for pedestrians is about 48 per cent completed.

Upon completion, the project will be three meters wide and will also cater for pedal cyclists. Hinds said the project will create a safe environment for students of nearby schools.

Minister of Public Works, Bishop Juan Edghill, who visited the project in October, said it showcases the lighter side of development the government is undertaking.

“What we will actually see happening is you will see a full concrete walkway, eventually with lights, at sections, down seats for sitting. From the edge of the road to the walkway, we will be doing an earthen shoulder for the encouragement of the growing of grass. Eventually what you will have is a big open space that at any one time, you can host a major activity,” Minister Edghill said.

The project commences at the roundabout and will end at Barr Street in the first phase. The second phase will see it being extended to Lamaha Street.
