Nevis Island Roads Safer Due To New Safety Markers

The Third Phase of the Island Main Road on Nevis is set to become the envy of neighbouring Caribbean Islands.  The newly constructed section of the main road that connects the Parishes of St James and St George’ respectively, had been so neglected under the former CCM Administration that in many areas it was deteriorated beyond repair. The old Tarmac road built over two decades was almost completely disintegrated in the Zion area.

After being elected to power through fair and democratic means in 2006, the NRP Administration in keeping with its commitment to build safer and more passable roads for the people of Nevis, immediately sought to rescue drivers from this section of the island main road that were considered to be hazardous and impassable.

The response of the NIA was remarkable in the sense that drivers on Nevis today have some of the most safer and passable roads to drive on compared to anywhere else in the region.

This was made possible after the NRP Administration had appropriately sought funds to modernize and complete the third phase of the island main road.  The expert Engineers behind this driving success was Surrey Paving & Aggregate Caribbean Ltd.

The new NIA proactive stance to give the island main road a new face-lift has not only improved the aesthetic of Nevis but the new and modernized road network that connects the Parishes of St. James to St. Georges’ respectively, has also help to shape the future of traffic safety on Nevis.

Junior Minister in the Ministry of Communication and Works Hon. Carlisle Powell touted the Nevis Island Administration’s (NIA) record in the area of road construction and referred to it as one unrivaled in the history of any government in Nevis.
 
Mr. Powell made the observation when he delivered remarks at a ground breaking ceremony at Lower Stoney Grove to signal the construction of four major areas or road construction in Charlestown.
 
“Our record in the area of road construction is unequalled in the history of any government in Nevis. By the end of our second year in office, this NRP government would have fixed more roads than the previous government did in their entire 14 years in office. This is in keeping with our promise of making life better for all Nevisians,” he said.
 
According to Mr. Powell, the Administration under the leadership of Premier Hon. Joseph Parry continued to make every effort to make serious improvements to the island’s road network over time.
