La Ressource road construction unlocks new potential in Vieux Fort

The Department of Infrastructure, Ports, and Energy wishes to inform the general public—in particular residents of Vieux Fort and environs—of the formal closure of the La Ressource Road, between the George Odlum Stadium and the La Ressource Bridge.

This closure is necessary to facilitate the construction of a new road to the soon to be constructed new multi-million dollar world-class Hewanorra International Airport Terminal. This project will also better connect the south of Saint Lucia to a world of new social and economic investment opportunities.

Residents and the motoring public are advised that a new by-pass road has been constructed providing very minimal disturbance to the normal commute. Residents and drivers are encouraged to pay close attention to directional and road traffic signs which will be posted for public guidance and safety.

Construction of the new road will improve road safety when turning into La Ressource, Vieux Fort. The project includes the construction of 1.6 kilometers of road, which includes site clearance, general excavation, dual carriageway construction, construction of drainage systems and undertake utility transfer work.

The Department of Infrastructure, Ports, and Energy applauds residents and motorists for their continued patience and support during the execution of this project, which paves the way for the injection of new life and investment in the south.

The road was closed on Nov. 15.
