St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): “There [will be] road work on the eastern side of the island, which is from Conaree, the airport roundabout, up to Keys and there [will be] road work from Old Road right down to Sandy Point. So, motorists, you’re asked to take note and drive with caution,” said Senior Engineer at the Public Works Department, George Gilbert, as he commented on the resumption of roadwork on the island this week (July 19-24).
Gilbert, during Traffic Talk on the July 19 broadcast of Island Tea, gave some details as to work needed to be done in the area. The main contractor for the road works projects, Surrey Paving, will be marking lines for the distinction of lanes on Wellington Road and also from Conaree through Keys and urged road users to drive with caution.
Repaving work continues in the Sandy Point area.
“In the Sandy Point area… there will be milling in the Sandy Point area. Milling means to remove the black asphaltic surface… they will continue milling, they will actually apply a crush base (crushed stones) to the road, and they will continue the asphalting in the Sandy Point area.”
In Old Road, “The people of Old Road to Godwin Ghaut… we will be asphalting during this week … so it means, therefore, motorists on both sides of the island on the eastern side and the western side of the island we ask you to cooperate with the workers for the work to be done properly, effectively, and speedily, we want you to cooperate with the team which is working on the road.”
