Residents of St Ann s are not pleased with the
Ministry of Works and Infrastructure s plan to recon-
struct the bridge on Coblentz Avenue. Many residents
expressed concern about traffic issues once the bridge
is closed for reconstruction.
The ministry held a public meeting for St Ann s
residents on Wednesday at Queen s Hall, St Ann s,
where they disclosed the plans for the reconstruction
and heard the residents concerns.
Latiff Mohammed, project manager with the Bridge,
Landslips and Traffic (BLT) Management Programme
Implementation Unit, said the reconstruction project
was estimated to take 12 months and had a budget
of approximately $27.2 million. Daleem General Con-
tracting has been hired to carry out the project.
For years the bridge has been showing signs of dete-
rioration. Some of the defects on the bridge include
a rotting steel deck, corrosion of the steel beams and
cracking of the abutments.
Some of the scope of works for the construction
project include widening of the bridge at the junction
of St Ann s Road and Cascade Road where a culvert
extension would be constructed adjacent to the existing
beam bridge. A pedestrian walkway will be fabricated
and erected as well.
Mohammed said the bridge would be closed to
vehicular traffic for the duration of the project with
a detour route via Cascade Road.
However, the detour requires an upgrade to accom-
modate the increased traffic volume. The bridge at
the junction of St Ann s Road and Cascade Road will
be widened to allow for a smoother traffic flow. These
works would be completed before the demolition of
the existing bridge.
Robber dies in hospital
St Ann's residents not
happy about new bridge
Mohammed said the new bridge would improve
the traffic flow because a two-lane bridge would
replace the existing single-lane steel beam bridge.
The residents are insisting the ministry put up a
temporary Bailey bridge while the permanent bridge
is under construction. A Bailey bridge is a type of
portable, pre-fabricated bridge usually used in con-
struction projects as a temporary measure for pedes-
trian and vehicular traffic. However, Mohammed
stated, the Bailey bridge would not be feasible for
vehicular traffic, but a pedestrian bridge would be
fabricated before the existing bridge is demolished.
The residents called for a proper traffic management
programme where traffic wardens are on the road
from 6am to 5pm. Also, one resident suggested that
the garbage collection trucks, including the city cor-
poration trucks that collect large refuse, should be
out of the area before 5am.
"The bridge has to be built, but whatever we do
we have to see that it is not too severely impacting
on our way out of here," a resident said.
Nidco's project manager Latiff Mohammed gives residents an overview of the proposed reconstruction of the
bridge at Coblentz Avenue, St Ann's, during a public consultation at Queen's Hall, St Ann's, on Wednesday.
