An Update on New Haulover Bridge

Lennox Bradley

If you commute to the city via the Philip Goldson Highway, you would also observe that land has been cleared on one side of the Haulover Bridge. It is the location where a newly designed bridge will be erected in 2022. The process is well underway, and the bridge will cost about thirty million dollars when completed. Chief Engineer, Lennox Bradley, gave News Five an update on the status of that project.

“A bulk of the bridge system that we have there will be composed of concrete precast members so a lot of work is happening off the site right now, but work is ongoing. Right now they have started to clear the actual location where the bridge ought to go and the precast members that are required are being built off the site and I think when those reach a certain point, then you will see some more activity on the ground. But having precast members really expedite the completion of a bridge structure; it reduces cost and it expedites. Like what we mentioned, we brought down the design from fifty-nine million [dollars] to around thirty million [dollars]. It is quite a substantial saving using locally available material and expertise.”
