Thursday, March 03, 2005 - The long-awaited rehabilitation works have commenced on the East Coast highway.

The first phase of the road works, which have been delayed by excessive climate change, commenced yesterday at the Grand Riviere Bridge and will continue to Fond dOr in Dennery.

The contract for the works has been awarded to C.O. Williams and Company, a well-known construction firm in St. Lucia.

The second phase of the rehabilitation work on the East Coast Highway will commence later this year and that will be from Cul de Sac, all the way to the Grand Riviere Bridge, with other sections to follow.

Meanwhile, the Government of St. Lucia wishes to advise and urge motorists and pedestrians in particular, and members of the public in general, to be patient as the rehabilitation works will cause inevitable slow-downs in traffic.

Most of the delay is expected to be in the area between Grand Riviere and La Caye and motorists are urged to bear with the inevitable irritations, bearing in mind that when the project is over, the East Coast Highway will, like that from Vieux Fort to Soufriere, be a stretch of road for St. Lucians to be proud of.
