The Grand Fond Road is about to get some attention, according to the country’s public works minister.
Rayburn Blackmoore says the Ministry of Finance has approved EC$384,000 for rehabilitation work on the entrance road leading to the village of Grand Fond.
According to the minister the project will involve excavation, stabilization of the cliff there and seventy metres of road work.
A wall extending 150 metres will also form part of the rehabilitation process.
The project is expected to be carried out by local company Offshore and Marine, and is part of ongoing rehabilitation work being undertaken in several parts of the country.
Minister Blackmoore says plans are also being finalized to address road edge failure concerns in other communities including Penville and Grandbay.
