The Ministry’s PURE Unit is also working on the following two major bridges:


B1/14 Churchill Roosevelt Highway (Arouca River Bridges)
The widening and reconstruction of the B1/14 Churchill Roosevelt Highway (Arouca River Bridges), located east of the Trincity Intersection on the Churchill Roosevelt Highway, involves: the reconstruction of the existing eastbound bridge, to increase the hydraulic capacity beneath the bridge and, to accommodate three standard lanes, two paved shoulders and, one pedestrian sidewalk. The existing westbound bridge will be widened to accommodate, three standard lanes, and two paved shoulders, all at a cost of TT$29,971,613.38 and the competition date is carded for August 2014.


B1/23 E.M.R. (D'Abadie Bridge)
The complete reconstruction of the B1/23 along the Eastern Main Road (D’Abadie Bridge) involves the demolition of the existing steel truss bridge which is estimated to be more than 75 years old. The new bridge will be constructed using steel I beams and I-girders with a reinforced concrete deck. The reconstruction of this bridge also involves some ancillary works such as the construction of retaining walls and rip rap in the river bed for scour protection. The cost of these works is approximately TT$19 M and they are expected to be completed by the end of June.
