Tuesday, August 10, 2004 - The Ministry of Physical Development, Environment and Housing will commence work on the construction of a road linking the two access routes of the Carellie Lands, which were recently developed for the relocation of residents, who were affected by the land slippage in Black Mallet/Maynard Hill. The road will also offer an alternative access to Bocage and North-East Castries, thus providing an additional link to the city.

The works, which are estimated to cost EC$2 million, have been broken up into two sections, and awarded to two contractors, Skelly’s Construction Services Limited and Irwin Gajadhar Construction and Equipment Limited. The engineers for the project are from ECMC Ltd. and the works will be monitored and inspected by the Ministry of Communications, Works, Transport and Public Utilities.

Works are scheduled to get underway by August 16th, 2004 and will last approximately five months.

Carellie residents will benefit from this improvement in the road network, while the access through Morne Du Don will benefit residents of Morne Du Don, Bocage and Agard who need rapid access to the north of the island.

The co-operation and understanding of residents of Carellie are being solicited, as they may have to undergo some level of inconvenience during the construction period. Persons building homes are particularly requested to remove all construction materials along the roads to facilitate the smooth progress of the works.
