Ladies and gentlemen, this journey began less than one year ago, on May 8, 2014 when we broke ground for the expansion of this cruise pier project. At that time, I promised you a new day for our tourism product.
Drainage works at Parham Town under the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) contract is 100 percent complete. Additional works are continuing to support the existing drainage system in ensuring that it functions at maximum capacity.
Road works in Palestina Estate/Pleasant Valley are 95 percent complete. Completed works per contract included raising the concrete bridge abutments and construction of a new bridge deck at a higher elevation. A new culvert was also constructed along the Palestina road and a section of the Drakes Highway back to the existing sea outfall near Nanny Cay.
The Ministry of Communications and Works continues to carry out its mandate of ensuring the safety of the motoring and pedestrian public and improving the quality of the Territory’s roads and has commenced road works on Virgin Gorda.
