The Ministry of Public Infrastructure says it will be widening the East Coast road along the old railway embankment.
Ministry of Public Infrastructure, Project Coordinator, Kester Hinds said that widening the road will allow for a smoother traffic flow.
Hinds told the Government Information Agency (GINA), that the Ministry has geometrics improvements for sections of the road from the area of the CARICOM Secretariat towards the Arthur Chung Convention Centre and for the Liliendaal Bridge that is currently under construction. “We will be doing some widening work there to allow for a smoother, efficient traffic flow in that area,” Hinds told GINA.
The Project Coordinator explained that the works are necessary since the area is usually plagued with heavy traffic especially when persons are travelling to the Giftland Mall.
He told GINA that the work to be carried out would facilitate an independent lane or direct access lane which would minimise traffic interruptions.
