With Sandy Point Roads Repaired, Focus Returns to Central Abaco

Road works continue across Abaco with plans to address road repairs and paving on the some of the cays in the near future according to North Abaco Minister of Parliament, Renardo Curry.

Mr. Curry said that “road works are being carried out in the Central Abaco area where some roads had to be reconstructed after having deteriorated for more than 25 years.”

He said that Simmons Construction Company has just completed the much needed road repair works in Sandy Point and has now begun the final stages to complete the roads in Central Abaco, including addressing the road apron in several areas.

“I’m advised after the reconstruction of some of the cross roads, the asphalt work is expected to continue,” Mr. Curry said.

He noted that included in the Central Abaco scope of works are the roads in Green Turtle Cay, as initially advised by the Permanent Secretary from the Ministry of works. “The roads in Green Turtle Cay are particularly in desperate need of repair and we do applaud the Bahamas government for facilitating these road works,” he said.

“Hopefully other cays like Hope Town can also benefit from these ongoing road works, especially after government passed legislation as it relates to the additional collection of real property tax that is expected to return some 50% of the amount collected back to the island for development,” Mr. Curry added.

He said “The reality is we will continue do all we can to complete the road program here on the island of Abaco. We ask the public to be patient as we engage in this vital infrastructural task.”

Bahamas Striping has also been working to mark the newly paved roads and road reflectors (cat’s eyes) have also been installed on dangerous corners on S. C. Bootle Highway heading north.
