Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson told the Department of Public Information (DPI) that to date all the piles have been driven and works should be completed by November.

“Some of the contractors started doing the foundations… all five will be completed by November this year. When completed, the overpasses will (be accepted) as a normal design.

For those who may not be able to walk the stairs to get up to the bypass, the elevator will take them up, and they will go to the other side and get down. I’m excited to have that done and completed,” Patterson said.
