Pathway For A New Nevis Road
June 03, 2008
June 03, 2008, marked the commencement of a three and a half month phase of road construction at Pinneys.
Minister of Housing and Lands in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) Hon. Robelto Hector, Nevis Housing and Land Development Corporation (NHLDC) Manager, Mr. Eustace Nisbett Jr. and Project Manager of Surrey Paving and Aggregate Mr. Desmond Lewis were on hand to witness the ground breaking.
The excavation work is the first phase towards providing access for 200 lots in the Nugents Village, Nugents Heights and the Pinney’s Commercial area.
Minister Hector spoke of the benefits to buyers and prospective purchasers.
“I think the development of this area is key to the entire country. We would like to know that those who have bought commercial plots can see now how great a development can take place within that area, so too those who have looked at residential lots are in a position to start their construction,” he said.
He expressed gratitude to Surrey Paving and the NHLDC for their work on the project.
“I want to say a particular thank you to Surrey Paving for again assisting us in terms of doing this development. I think it is clear now, on this island, the great work that Surrey Paving is doing and as a partnership, we are definitely moving places. I want to thank also the manager of the Land and Housing Corporation who has been doing an excellent job, he and his staff,” the Minister said.
Mr. Hector asked for the understanding of the general public as the NIA attempted to improve infrastructure on Nevis.
