OAS RESPRESENTATIVES DURING A BREAK AT THE MEETING

Primary contractor of the SHHPF, OAS Constructora and consultants AECOM, presented on the major relocations that will have to take place along the path of the highway before construction works can continue. These relocations and removals need to happen within specific timeframes to ensure the project is completed on schedule. Two major segments of the highway, namely, Dumfries Road to Dunlop Roundabout and Debe to Mon Desir, are the most crucial areas. These segments house many with oil wells, gas lines, services lines, and service cables that would need to be relocated for the extension project.
