NASSAU STREET ROAD PAVING EXERCISE COMPLETED

The Nassau Street road paving is officially completed, Works Minister the Honorable Desmond T Bannister confirmed Monday.  

“The Nassau Street paving exercise has been completed,” he said. “The Bahamix team will move on to Faith Avenue to finish the paving exercise on that street.

“Bahamix has advised me that the projected completion date for Faith Avenue will be Friday August 7, 2020,” he added.

The Minister noted the roadworks on Nassau Street commenced nearly two weeks ago and was originally scheduled to be completed July 18.

“However, a series of delays prevented the project from being completed on time,” he said. “Issues that affected the roadworks were equipment malfunction and an asphalt plant problem at Bahamix.”

The newly laid asphalt must be given 28 days to cure prior to the installation of painted road markings. At the appropriate time the Ministry of Public Works will complete the necessary works for road mark painting, installation of “cat-eyes”  and installation of requisite street signage such as street names, stop signs and speed limit signs.
