Old Road Rehabilitation Project Suffers Another Delay

By Kevon Browne

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Another hurricane season has come and gone and the Old Road Rehabilitation Project still remains incomplete.

The Old Road Rehabilitation Project that began in March 2019 and was scheduled for completion 12 months later is now nine months past the initial estimated completion date and on track for another delay.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Infrastructure, Utilities, Posts, and Urban Development, Shawn Richards.

The EC$32 million project was previously delayed because of an issue with the quarry, but Richards indicated that the road was opened during an emergency.

Richards described the opening of the road as a good investment. He gave no indication as to when it will be permanently open to the public even though it is described as being ‘substantially completed.’
