St. Lucia – The Department of Infrastructure has begun construction work on two mini roundabouts set to be placed along the Sir Julian Hunte Highway.

Two mini-roundabouts will be located on the Sir Julian Hunte Highway.

Deputy Chief Engineer at the Department of Infrastructure, Ports and Transport, Len Leon, explained that the government has, over the years, engaged stakeholders on the implementation of soft measures to aid with the flow of traffic along the Sir Julian Hunte Highway.

As a result, provisions were made to fund proposed actions.
“The Government of Saint Lucia made provisions in this year’s fiscal budget to tackle at least two of these soft measures in the vicinity of Bois d’Orange, particularly at the junction leading to the S&S Plaza, and at the junction leading to Computer World.
“The first will be at the entrance to the S&S Plaza, where, after considering various options, we have decided on a mini roundabout concept in order to manage the traffic flow that egresses and ingresses from the S&S Plaza. Work is anticipated to take three weeks to complete.

“The contractor is engaged and is currently reviewing traffic management in order to ensure a smooth operation and cause the least disruption to the motoring public.”

Works on the project began on March 25, 2024.
