Honourable Rymer said, “I am happy to note that the Nail Bay road is partially opened to allow the residents and visitors affected to commute via this road while my team continues to carry out works in this area. The Hannah Hill road above the Elevator Hill road will begin works to address the undermining in this area shortly.”
Ongoing and completed works to date since the holiday season include: Road Paving at Freshwater Pond Parts A & B; Road Paving at Garden Road, Carrot Bay Project 95 % completed; Road Paving at Romney Park, 95% completed; Cappoon’s Bay Band Stand Repairs; Cappoon's Bay Post Office Box; Cappoon's Bay Gazebo Roof; Cappoon's Bay Fencing Repairs (West); Cappoon’s Bay Fencing Repairs (South); Cappoon's Bay Basketball Bleachers, I, 2 and 3.
