Village Road is earmarked for improvement. The Ministry of Public Works has allocated some $7,141,788.80 to the 2021/2022 Budget to rehabilitate the single carriage way between East Bay Street and St. Andrew’s Drive. The Hon. Desmond Bannister, Minister of Public Works, in his contribution to the Budget Debate said the roadway’s condition has deteriorated over its 20-plus-year lifespan.

He said, “The Ministry of Public Works is desirous to rehabilitate this roadway, improve its level of service and install critical power and water infrastructure upgrades in conjunction with Bahamas Power and Light and Water and Sewerage Corporation.

“To this end, the Ministry of Public Works engaged in a tender exercise for the procurement of a Design and Build type Contract to develop detailed design and construction of the identified works.”
