(PRESS RELEASE) – Road marking are scheduled to commence on Wednesday December 18 as the Sandals to Choc Road Widening Project moves towards completion.
Motorists and the general public are advised that the Northbound Lane between the Friendship Inn and the Choc Roundabouts remain closed. The Southbound Dual Lanes will continue to accommodate two-way traffic, which means that one lane will accommodate southbound traffic while the other lane will accommodate northbound traffic.
These diversions will remain in effect until further notice. As such motorists are advised to proceed with caution and expect delays. Additionally, drivers are encouraged to use alternative routes along the “Back Roads”, ie; Morne Du Don to Balata and La Panse to Carielle through to Union etc.
Weather permitting the Contractor, CO Williams has assured that the project will be complete by Thursday this week. Crews are currently working on laying final asphalt and site cleaning.
The Department of Infrastructure, Ports and Energy apologises for the unpredictable delays and thanks the public for their patience and understanding.
