NASSAU, BAHAMAS – From potholes, to inadequate sidewalks and flooding – poor conditions in New Providence remain a consistent bump in the road for users. 

But beginning the first quarter of next year Minister of Works Clay Sweeting says his ministry will launch an aggressive milling and asphalt program for major repairs to some 55 miles in Nassau.

And with some 880 miles of road to maintain in the capital alone, the work is a mammoth task. Thus far, there’s been some level of repairs to only 23 of those miles.

But with this new project, the scope of work will see the replacement of old asphalt with newer, more durable material as well as repairing sidewalks and improving drainage.

And according to Sweeting,  Family Islands will not be left out.

The project is expected to span two and half years and will cost taxpayers $98,210,000. In the meantime,  the minister says the department will continue to undertake smaller projects.
