Work on the Chinese funded West Coast Road Development Project which extends from Roseau to Portsmouth is currently at an advanced stage with asphalting works now taking place in the Picard, Portsmouth area. Three kilometres of work has already been completed.
Chinese Project Manager of the rehabilitation of the Roseau to Portsmouth West Coast Project, Jing Hao, speaking through an interpreter, told GIS news on Thursday that the asphalting of the road in Portsmouth compliments other works now being done on the project.
He said that the construction of a box culvert on approaching Picard was done to reinstate a failed section of that road and significant improvements were done to drainage structures.
“Presently, we have started paving the road at Portsmouth and we are still doing some other works in the Portsmouth areas. This includes the box culvert, just at the entrance of Picard. Based on our designs, it is not actually what we were supposed to have done but based on the requirements of the Government, we have made certain adjustments. That is pretty much what has been done so far in the Portsmouth area.” cont./
