UPDATE: West Coast Road, Anse La Raye Bridge Works


The Department of Infrastructure, Ports and Transport is pleased to update the public on the ongoing progress of the Millennium Highway and West Coast Road Reconstruction Project (MHWCRP), a transformative initiative aimed at enhancing the infrastructure and connectivity between the Capital and the West to Southwestern part of the island.


Trinidad-based firm NAMALCO Inc. has been awarded the contract for the West Coast Road reconstruction project.

Currently, the focus is on retaining wall construction and roadway maintenance spanning from the Anse La Raye Bridge to Canaries.


O.B. Sadoo Engineering Services has been entrusted with the crucial task of reconstructing the Anse La Raye Bridge.

Demolition works have commenced in the bridge’s vicinity, with steel fabrications for a temporary bypass bridge being assembled on-site.


C.O. Williams Construction Ltd. is advancing the Millennium Highway component of the project.

The current emphasis is on the construction of the Cul de Sac Roundabout, sidewalks, and structural works.

Paving works are slated to commence following the completion of these key elements. Single lane closures may also be experienced while works also continue along sections of the Millennium Highway.

The Department of Infrastructure, Ports and Transport emphasizes the importance of safety for both motorists and pedestrians in the vicinity of the project sites.

Extreme caution is advised, and all are urged to adhere to the associated signs, signals, and cautionary devices in place.

The MHWCRP is a vital investment in Saint Lucia’s infrastructure, and the Department expresses gratitude for the public’s cooperation and understanding during these crucial developments.

  1. Mark my word this bridge will cost tens of millions spanning a year of construction, watch it as it progress. Remember back when the now PM was minister for works, the Bios D’Orange bridge cost some 11.5M. a bridge that is less than a 100ft. He further make his voice so vocal that he claims it was a world class advance bridge. I wonder if he were to travel to Suriname and witness a bridge elevate from its normal position to have Cargo Ship pass under muchless to travel on the Demerara Harbour Bridge which floats on the river, (world longest floating bridge probably older than him) what will he term those bridges? SMFH awa for this Gov. Progress with the forking work and stop looking for publicity.
