The much-needed rehabilitation of the Claude Noel Highway will begin on March 11.
The Division of Infrastructure, Quarries and the Environment agreed to delay the start of the project so that it will not impact Carnival celebrations in Scarborough. This was decided after talks with Carnival officials.
The project was originally scheduled to start this month (February). The National Maintenance Training and Security Company Limited (MTS) is project manager, and Seereeram Bros Limited is the contractor. The ground breaking will take place at the Rockly Vale intersection, near the Clico Building.
The rehabilitation will be done in two phases. The first segment will stretch from the Rockly Vale intersection to the Wilson Road intersection, while the second segment will extend from the Wilson Road intersection to the Orange Hill Intersection.
The rehabilitation of the 2.2 kilometre stretch of highway will take an estimated six months.
Details on the traffic management plan for the project are forthcoming.
