Work has been completed on the construction of the new bridge over the College Street Ghaut in the area of the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport.
The 22 meters wide and 20 meters long structure was completed last week, will link the new route leading to New Road and St. Peter’s with the Shadwell Link Road on the western side of the runway of the airport.
Work is continuing on the drainage system and the 300 meters road on the eastern and western sides of the bridge.
Base works have been completed on one side of the road and as soon as the other side is done, asphalting of the entire new road will begin.
The existing curved road at the end of the runway is to be closed when the new road is opened to traffic.
The new road will take vehicular traffic to and from St. Peter’s right along the western extremities of the airport and into the BNTF Road leading to the new Shadwell round-a-bout onto the Frederick T. Williams Highway.
