(PRESS RELEASE) — On Wednesday, January 23, the Department of Infrastructure will officially sign the consultancy agreement/contract for designs and will launch the “Millennium Highway and West Coast Roads Upgrading Project”.

This signals immediate commencement of the project.

The project will deliver: complete rehabilitation of the Millennium Highway (no more roller coaster rides), reconstruction of the West Coast roads from Cul De Sac all the way to Soufriere, design for the construction of the new Anse La Raye Bridge, and a robust island-wide roads safety programme.

All this work will be done with grant funding from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) – United Kingdom Caribbean Infrastructure Partnership Fund (UKCIF) — an injection of approximately $115 million in the local economy.

    what about the Piaye bridge is it going to be rebuilt or not? The drivers in the south need a new bridge as well, it's time to take down the current structure down and build a new.

  2. Congratulations to Dr Kenny Anthony for getting David Cameron and his UK Government to agree to this Caribbean wide infrastructure Grant! I know the intention was to put it towards the north-south link road but at least something will finally happen soon. One question, the release says design but doesn't mention construction of the Anse la Raye bridge. Will construction of the bridge be part of the project.
