Tuesday 17 May 2011  Following an assessment of the island's infrastructure by Prime Minister Hon. Stephenson King and other government officials last week, Minister for Communications, Works, Transport, and Public Utilities, Honourable Guy Joseph, in an exclusive interview with the GIS, gave an update on the bridges which are presently under reconstruction.  The minister also spoke on recent awarded contracts in the north of the island.


“Presently we have taken on a number of  reconstruction efforts in terms of bridges and river crossings throughout the island; some of them are already in use for example in the Ti Roche area. I think the other area of  major concern is the Bois d'orange bridge – we have issued a contract for the by-pass road and once the by-pass road is completed then we are going to construct a proper bridge in the Bois d'orange area.”  


According to Joseph, while the process may inconvenience members of the public, his ministry will take every precaution to enable the completion of the  by-pass  in the shortest possible time, without compromising the integrity of the structure.  


“We hope to get the by-pass not necessarily  fully completed, but within 4 to 6 weeks we should be able to use  that by-pass in the event  we have any problems up in the northern area.” 


The public is asked to exercise both patience and caution during the period of  construction of the by-pass in the Bois d'orange area.
