Extensive work on Mile Seven along the Phillip Goldson Highway is underway. A portion of the road collapsed a few months ago due to erosion caused by the river. The repair process has been drawn out due to certain procedures the contractor needed to follow regarding the foundation of the area. Ministry of Infrastructure Development’s Chief Engineer, Lennox Bradley explained that piles are ready to be driven into the area so construction can take place.
Lennox Bradley, Chief Engineer Officer, MOWH: “Well contract has been signed and I think the contractor now has sufficient time to manufacture the piles and I think very shortly in next week or there about we will start seeing movement in that area where the piles will start to be driven. But there is a process that we have to go through and unfortunately that process is using up the time that we estimate the we estimate the works so it’s not like the contractor is well behind schedule this is the timeline that we expected the contractor to utilize to complete the works.”
