Nassau, The Bahamas – The Government’s $120 million New Providence Road Improvement and Infrastructure Project (NPRIIP) is making “steady” progress.
The project is an initiative designed to improve the road network by constructing new road corridors, reconstructing existing road corridors and improving major intersections.
East Street and Robinson Road
Road pavement has been installed on East Street and Robinson Road beginning at Claridge Road. New traffic signal lights and drainage wells have also been placed at this junction.
Wulff and Baillou Hill Roads
Paving in sections has begun. The Wulff Road/Poinciana and Baillou Hill Road junction has been paved. Fleming to Chapel Streets has also been paved.
Claridge and Robinson Roads
New traffic lights have been erected at the Robinson and Claridge Roads junction and are in the process of being energised. Sidewalks, pedestrian crossings and bus stops are also planned for this area.
Traffic is flowing on the new lanes that have been built on East Street.
The improvements to this corridor also include curbing, street light columns and sidewalks. Underground drainage infrastructure has been installed on both sides of the road beneath the sidewalks.
