The Smithfield Connector Road is just the start of road infrastructure to improve the flow of traffic in and around Scarborough.
Secretary of Infrastructure Quarries and the Environment Kwesi Des Vignes said other road works are planned.
“We are going to pass over the steel bridge towards the Pentecostal Light and Life [Foundation High] School, so that is just Phase One,” Des Vignes said during last week’s post Executive Council media briefing.
Des Vignes said traffic management around Mt. Marie Road is now more critical as the new Scarborough RC School opens in the vicinity of Bishop’s High School.
“We have been working with Bishop’s High School,” the Infrastructure Secretary explained, “so there will be a new access plan for [Bishop’s], as well as the new connector road. We’re still maintaining two-lane, two-way traffic, and we will be monitoring it for a two-week period along the new Smithfield Connector Road,” he said.
The Infrastructure Secretary said the employees assigned to these projects from his Division will work closely with the police to ensure the most efficient use of the road while works are in progress.
