Plans to upgrade Old Road Bay
(ZIZ News) — Plans are already underway to continue a project to upgrade the road at Old Road Bay.
That’s the word from Minister of Public Infrastructure the Hon Ian Liburd.
In an interview with ZIZ Minister Liburd gave an update on the Old Road Rebahilitation Project.
“You recognize that going across Old Road Bay the road is almost on par with the sea,” he said.
So to mitigate against risks form the sea side we’re going to do some reclamation work on the sea side and move the road seaward, so to speak,” he continued. “That would mitigate against both issues: reduce the risk of rock slippage from the land side and of course, the risk from the high surfs from the sea side during storms in particular”.
This project is expected to cost approximately 23 million dollars.
