Reconstruction of Bridge B 2in10 Toco Main Road


BRIDGING THE GAP: BRIDGE B 2/10 TOCO MAIN ROAD OFFICIALLY OPENED 


Bridge B 2/10 Toco Main Road was officially opened on Sunday 29th, 2015 by the Ministry’s Bridges, Landslips and Traffic Management Project Implementation Unit at approximately $14million dollars. The contractor Eastern Engineering and Marketing Services Limited was able to complete reconstruction works within three months.

According to the Honourable Dr Surujrattan Rambachan-Minister of Works and Infrastructure, “Small projects like these contribute to eco-tourism and international tourism. We must see the significance of these projects from a wider perspective which is making rural communities more accessible. This is in line with the Government’s plans to place emphasis on rural redevelopment. To add, the new Bridge B2/10 Toco Main Road is an example of valued engineering without compromising quality."

Results from a surveys conducted by BLT revealed that, the previous one lane bridge became structurally deficient. As a result, the bridge was reconstructed to a 11.4 metre long by 10.3metre wide reinforced concrete culvert which caters for two (2) lanes of traffic and accompanying works.

It is anticipated the reconstruction works will facilitate:-
  •  Reduced traffic congestion and an improved traffic flow
  •  Effective road safety initiatives for commuters and pedestrians
  •  Improved hydraulic capacity which will reduce the occurrence of flooding
  •  Increased infrastructural development, economic growth and increased community pride for the for    the northeastern region
The reconstruction of B2/10 Toco Main Road is one of twenty-one projects which are currently being undertaken in Phase I of BLT’s Bridges Reconstruction Programme (BRP) for 2014/2015.
