Diego residents to get briefing on highway


Members of the public have been invited to attend a presentation on the Diego Martin Highway Expansion Project and other improvement road works tomorrow at 6 p.m.

The presentation will be done by Minister of Works and Infrastructure Emmanuel George at Diego Martin Central Community Centre, 1 Jasper Avenue, Diamond Vale, Diego Martin.

A statement from the Ministry advised that the public presentation will serve to inform all potential stakeholders of the details of the current highway expansion.

"All interested parties are invited to attend and to inform themselves of the improvements being executed and what exactly they are to expect."

The highway expansion is designed to alleviate traffic congestion at the entrance to the Diego Martin area by the construction of two extra lanes going north-bound.

"In addition to this, plans are in development for further road and highway improvements extending as far north as the Diego Martin Main Road at Bagatelle," the statement noted.
