The ‘long overdue’ Rodney Bay Highway Improvement Project currently provides employment to approximately 100 people, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet says.
And Chastanet hailed Gros Islet MP, Lenard ‘Spider’ Montoute in connection with the initiative.
“Spider promised to make roads a priority this term and he is delivering on his promise,” the PM asserted.
Chastanet made the remarks on his official Facebook page.
In his post, the PM listed a number of issues that the Rodney Bay Highway Improvement Project seeks to address:
1) Addressing traffic congestion by constructing 2 additional motoring lanes from Reduit to Bonne Terre with 2 roundabouts being constructed
2) Improving motorist and pedestrian safety by constructing sidewalks and a walkover
3) Reducing flooding during heavy rains by improving the drainage system in the area
4) Improving the consistency and reliability of the water supply in the north by replacing the WASCO Main Pipes which are over 30 years old
