Ongoing road works will commence this week as Bill Simmons Construction & Heavy Equipment Company Ltd. have received approvals to continue with the drilling of drainage wells and re-paving works.
Kino Simmons, General Manager of Simmons Construction said the he received a letter of approval in the middle of January and would receive the approval itself by January 24 allowing them to get back to work.
Mr. Simmons said they were in final negotiations with technocrats at the Ministry of Works to iron out the financial details and would mobilize January 27, initially doing surveying of the roads then paving.
He said the approval includes three drainage wells to be drilled in the area of Rubis Gas Station and Abaco Hardware with subsequent completion of paving on Don MacKay and the repaving of Queen Elizabeth all the way to the Crossing.
Mr. Simmons expects paving to resume by the first week of February, and weather permitting, be completed quickly.
