Roadworks At Fox Hill Road and Prince Charles Drive
Nassau, Bahamas – Roadworks on Fox Hill Road and Prince Charles Drive have commenced. The works are a part of the Government’s $120 million contract for the New Providence Road Improvement Project.
The work includes installation of a 24-inch water main from Fox Hill Road and Prince Charles Drive in the east to the junction at Baillou Hill and Robinson Road that is expected to improve water quality. Drainage utilities are also being installed.
Charlene Collie, Project engineer with the Ministry of Public Works and Transport said, “Work on the northern verge of Fox Hill Road and Prince Charles junction has begun. The work will eventually lead into full road closure as we install the 24-inch water main.”
The closure will not take place immediately, but as the work progresses it will eventually lead into a full closure that is expected to last for a short duration. During the closure motorists are advised to divert through Sea Breeze and Fox Hill Road travelling the route along Bernard Road.
“We ask the public to exercise patience as we go through the construction phase,” said Ms. Collie. “It should not be for more than four weeks as we are trying to install at least approximately 300 ft of the 24-inch water main.”
Workmen are also busy installing approximately 1500 ft of the 24-inch water main at St. Michael’s Road on the western end of Prince Charles Drive. “We’re progressing with installation of over 300 ft per week that equates to 5 weeks,” said Ms. Collie.
