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.

Remaining works to be completed include paving road and installing safety barriers, such as rails and fencing for community safety.

The Government of the Virgin Islands, in conjunction with the Caribbean Development Bank, is pleased that the Infrastructure Rehabilitation Project is progressing.
