Extensive road works underway in New Providence


The Ministry of Works through Bahamix has embarked on a Road Works Project in New Providence and the Family Islands. Melanie Roach, Director in the Ministry of Works, said the extensive list of roads includes West Bay Street from Blake Road to the roundabout at Old Fort Bay, Village and Soldier roads from Shirley Street to Baillou Hill Road, East Bay Street from the bridge to Montague, roads in Palmdale and Firetrail Road and Culberts Hill. Removal of the existing pavement and paving are set to begin on Farrington Road on Monday, March 5th between the hours of 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, for 10 working days. The resurfacing of Farrington Road will extend from the “six-legged” roundabout to Boyd Road.

The Director advised the motoring public to avoid Farrington Road while the roadworks are being carried out. Public notices of road paving will be issued through Bahamas Information Services, government notices, the Ministry’s Facebook page and Hotline, and door-to-door for residents affected. Bahamix recently completed roadworks on Willow Tree Avenue, Pinewood Gardens.
