I like rain in Haiti. The smell of wet soil. The sound of droplets on tin roofs and concrete floors.
Rain brings me peace and comfort.
Which is odd, because rain in PauP has always been dangerous, deadly even. Water rises in the roads. Motors stall. Chaos ensues.
Upgrading work on Mandela Highway is said to be nearly 90 percent complete.
The National Works Agency (NWA) is reporting that the road, which is a key link between the Corporate Area and the west and south, including Spanish Town and two major toll roads, is 89 per cent complete.
A JIS report, November 15, says the US$64-million Mandela Highway Realignment and Reconstruction project involves road construction works comprising extensive soft soil treatment, construction of a 3.5 km six-lane corridor with a two-lane overpass bridge, two new three-lane bridges at Fresh River, a two-lane service road adjacent to the main roadway to facilitate the development of Caymanas Estate and upgrading of the Six Miles Interchange.
Senior Communications and Customer Services Officer at the NWA, Ramona Lawson says a significant portion of the work has been completed so far. “We have completed the Fresh River Bridge, we have completed the overpass bridge except for pavement works and the erection of safety nets. We have paved about 3.2 of 3.5 kilometres of the eastbound carriage way that is between the east/west off-ramp to Tom Cringle,” she informs. “We have paved a section of the service road as well – about 500 metres – and we have paved three kilometres of the westbound carriage way from the railway crossing up to the Fresh River Bridge.
She notes that by the end of the month additional pavement work will be carried out “all the way up to Tom Cringle, at which time we will be able to direct westbound traffic on to the westbound carriageway”. Ms. Lawson, tells JIS News that the project’s next major engagement is the construction of the overpass bridge, which is near completion.
