CAUTION: Drainage, sidewalk, headwall and signage works along the edges of both highways

6
This serves to inform you that ongoing works with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda Road Infrastructure Rehabilitation Project now nearing completion is resulting in ongoing single lane traffic operations of both the Sir George Walter Hwy and the Friars Hill Rd.
The project managing team therefore urges road users to proceed with caution as the contractor moves ahead with drainage, sidewalk, headwall and signage works along the edges of both corridors.
Please also be advised that a part of Sir Sydney Walling Hwy between north sound roundabout and Parham corner will remain closed for about five weeks to facilitate road reconstruction works near Lunar Park.
Residents in the area east of the closure limits will be required to divert through Parham when traveling west towards the capital St. John’s. Eastbound traffic will be required to travel via the northsound roundabout, through Parham then on to Sir Sydney Walling Hwy.
Grievance and concerns can be communicated to the project office  via telephone: 562-9474/5 or Emil: [email protected]

  1. WHAT A JOKEY ISLAND……..LMAO!!!!!! One day things will get better and people with common sense, proper vision and morality will be at the controls…NO NOT U UPP!(put ya hands down)……SMH….In the 21st century Antigua ah struggle to build two roads, sensible roundabouts and still have water issues when we surrounded by water…….Will the village roads be sorted out also or they don’t matter cause the people don’t matter next election???? Wait I forgot the village roads will get bum jobs close to election LMAO….GOVERNMENT: Ya want good roads?

Ah Covid time we done squander ya’ll money, tourism nar gwarn wid nutting and we can’t get no crooked deals done.. So jus lowe awe jack!!! LOL…….What a place LMAO……

    • It is widely known that them roads done by BHM and CO Williams are being funded by the British, via the Caribbean development bank.

      • Well said! The first country in the Eastern Caribbean to receive funding for these roads which cost Antigua $0.
        If anything, Antigua generates revenue from it as both companies must employ locals and use local subcontractors to stimulate the ‘social economic growth’. Some Antiguans have made a hell of a lotta cash from this!

  2. In addition to above ‘finishing works’ another news outlet reports ‘APUA is embarking on an extensive project on both new roads to lay underground cabling’. I’m incredulous.
    Didn’t we wait over a year for APUA to prepare their services etc. delaying the start & smooth working hoped for by BHM?
    Didn’t we get told underground water, electrical & fibre optic cabling was being done by APUA as the road project progressed?
    To all the folks who wrote in taking bets on when the decent roads would be ‘cut up’ so weakening their very infrastructure, here we go.
    And what consequence will there be for APUA ? None presumably.

    Similar to police traffic division crying wolf AFTER the roads made, markings & signs done, money spent – instead of studying the plans carefully, consulting with govt planners & BHM, asking pertinent anticipatory questions IN ADVANCE to ensure signage, markings, access points, roundabout placements etc. etc. all met Antiguan standards.

    WHY is it that we consistently show our lack of forward thinking, planning & preparation on large scale government projects? It is embarrassing, wastes money & delivers a weakened end-product.
