Nassau, The Bahamas – Road paving along with the installation of street lighting columns, signage and road markings on Robinson Road and East Street corridor will help to enhance the driving experience of motorists. The work is a part of the New Providence Road Improvement and Infrastructure Project.

Robinson Road beginning at Claridge Road to East Street was recently closed in 15ft intervals to vehicular traffic to carry out the installation of a 24-inch water-main. The road was recently opened to vehicular traffic

“As indicated to business owners in the immediate affected area we were under full closure in sections of Robinson Road. We’ve installed the road pavement beginning from Claridge Road and vehicles can now travel directly to East Street. We’ve also installed traffic signal poles for new traffic signals for the area and drainage wells required for the junction,” said Charlene Collie, project engineer.

“The street light columns will give proper illumination and greatly enhance the road corridor. The height and type of bulb help with illumination and safety is greatly improved especially during nighttime driving,” said Ms. Collie.

Having crossed over East Street to Robinson Road, workmen are now progressing westward toward Baillou Hill Road with the installation of the 24-inch water-main.

“We are pretty much on schedule for the installation of the 24-inch water-main. The first section for work on Robinson Road heading west is from the East Street junction to Eighth Street,” Ms. Collie said.
