Three years after work started, and after much frustration by motorists, Government has finally moved to acquire property at Warrens Hill to facilitate completion of the major Warrens road improvement project.
Highly-placed sources confirmed to the DAILY NATION that just last month, officials of the Ministry of Transport and Works (MTW) started the land acquisition process that would allow contractor C.O. Williams Construction to provide the four traffic lanes and dual sidewalks called for in the $50 million project.
At the same time, a source revealed, motorists who were looking forward to the proposed roundabout at the Friendship/Green Hill/Lodge Hill junction to ease their commuting woes would be disappointed.
That’s because MTW has temporarily shelved the idea after protracted discussions with one landowner on this aspect of the Warrens Traffic Safety Improvement Project. While the final redesign for the junction had not yet been completed, the source said, motorists would be left with an enhanced four-cross junction.
