More contracts awarded for road rehabilitation

Roseau, Dominica (May 9, 2017) — The Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica has announced that it has awarded more than EC$3 million in contracts for further road rehabilitation.

Penville Road Protection
Following a tender process, the Ministry of Public Works and Ports has awarded a contract to Ideal Construction Ltd in the amount of two million, two hundred and fifty-eight thousand, eight hundred and seventeen dollars and ninety cents ($2,258,817.90) for Penville Road Protection and Reinstatement Works.

The road works will include concrete surfacing and the construction of drainage infrastructure. In addition, five retaining structures will be built along different sections of the road between the Dematrie Bridge and Eau Jeune.

Riviere Cyrique
Following a tender process, the Ministry of Public Works and Ports has awarded a contract to Offshore Civil and Marine Inc. in the sum of one million, one hundred and thirty-eight thousand, one hundred and forty-five dollars, and eighty cents ($1,138,145.80) for the construction of a retaining wall and culvert crossing at Riviere Cyrique that will restore two-lane traffic along that road.

River Estate
A third contract has been awarded to Ken Esprit in the amount of seven hundred and eighty-seven thousand, two hundred and twenty-seven dollars, and ninety cents ($787,227.90) for construction of a River Wall at River Estate in Canefield.

Following the passage of Tropical Storm Erika the road network suffered tremendous damage. After assessments were made it was revealed that serious undermining and road failures occurred and road users and pedestrians are at risk. Therefore urgent intervention to stabilize the road structure and to protect the lives of road users and pedestrians remains a priority.

    I was rather disappointed with the PM plans for Cochrane. All he cared about was HIS plans for Cochrane. The main road is in a sorry state. The crap that was done on Cochrane road last year will lead to more damage in River Estate. With the trough systems that keep affecting Cochrane badly, it will carry over to River Estate. Remember that river water comes from Cochrane. The only repairs he was concerned about was to accommodate the people of Antrim in the event that their road cannot be repaired. We are being illegally charged a dollar extra from Cochrane to Roseau. Bus drivers doe want to make trips to Cochrane because of the condition of the road. Lets see how much damage will force the PM to do something worth while. I guess when Antrim people have to use the road he will pay attention. STUPES!!!

    Let me borrow some words from Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit: To Hell With Dominica! To Hell with their projects! To hell with this damn country of fools and blind bats. According to Skerrit, Go to hell, go to hell , go to hell! Dominica is truly a country of No law and no constitution and it is in deep hell

    Way to go. There’s nothing that can jump start an economy like infrastructure expenditure. Just ask the US.
