Roseau Valley Parl Rep Satisfied With Work on Wotten Waven – Trafalgar Link Bridge
Parliamentary Representative for the Roseau Valley Constituency Honourable Collin McIntyre says, he is satisfied with the progress of work on the Wotten Waven – Trafalgar Link Bridge.
The project aims to restore the normal operations of the bridge, by stabilizing and protecting the embankment, and rehabilitate the road.
The connection between Wotten Waven and Trafalgar suffered serious damage to that bridge, where the wing was undermined and it collapsed into the river blocking the road for a long period.
Funds for the $147,000 project are provided by the Government through the Ministry of Public Works, Energy and Ports.
The project consists of the construction of a wing wall with the purpose of retaining the earth from further slippage and to stabilize the edge of the road, while the construction of a V-drain on the southern section of the bridge will minimize infiltration underneath the road foundation.
The project is 85% complete with back filling and road reinstatement left to be done.
