Government commences National Street Lighting Project.

St. Johns Antigua and Barbuda… The Government of Antigua and Barbuda is now rolling out what it calls an ambitious National Street Lighting Project that will upgrade the existing street lighting infrastructure in the twin island state.

Lot 1 Nurse Geoinformatics & Consulting (NGC) has been awarded the contract for the project earmarked to run for a minimum of six weeks. It will

commence with new lights being installed on Sir George Walter Highway. Technical support will be provided by the Antigua Public Utility Authority (APUA) Electricity Business Unit and the Project Implementation Management Unit (PIMU) will be responsible for day-to-day oversight.

The PIMU is pleased to report that although the scheduled start of the street lighting project experienced some setbacks due to the knock-on effects of the world pandemic, all systems are now in place to get the project underway.

There have been various impacts on global supplies with metal processing and manufacturing very slow to recover from the crisis but in response, the PIMU continued to plan for the project’s implementation.

Minister of Works, the Honorable Lennox Weston, expresses the view that supplies and resources are now returning to normal (pre-covid) levels and envisions that the national street lighting project will be completed in the upcoming months.

The Works Minister is of the opinion that the project is one of the government’s investments in a brighter Antigua and Barbuda and says that it is a critical infrastructur initiative that will contribute significantly to the nation’s development at a time when Antigua and Barbuda continue to

prioritize road safety. Once the new street lights are operational, the focus will be on maintenance and reducing the overall carbon footprint the Works Minister concluded.

  2. Chups! Everything last minute. Doing in 8 weeks what they failed to do in 8 years. People are starving. No jobs. No stimulus. The wicked GASSTON government REFUSES to tackle the cost of living. Crime is out of control. But THANK GOD! You will now change a few blown lightbulbs, while the people continue to starve. Hail Gaston!

  3. Fantastic news, the return of the ABLP’S magical money 💰 tree 🎄 before calling the next General Election.

    To tell you the truth, I was beginning to wonder what happened to it.

    WHAT’S THAT I SMELL?

    ELECTION INCOMING …

  4. Is this the street lighting from the international grant years ago… something in the thousands of poles range that were never installed.
    The street lights on airport road should have been installed with the road, I know the conduits went in for them. Let’s hope they don’t hit the water main, or the airport fuel line near rubis.

  5. What do I hear, jail the new blue led lights I wonder. To check to see who all have been jabbed through their veins. I could be wrong or right.
