The contract for the re-construction of the Frenchman’s Cay Bridge was awarded at a cost of $315,753.04 through a Cabinet-backed contract signed in December 2021 to Quality Construction, a company owned by My Roy L. Garraway.
Work on the 4-month project started in mid-February, following public consultations.
Premier and Minister of Finance Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1), speaking at the community meeting for the project on Sunday, January 30, 2022, at the newly renovated West End Community Centre, had said the reconstruction of the Frenchman’s Cay Bridge “is a long-overdue problem that needed urgent attention for years.”
And, in an update today, March 24, 2022, Hon Fahie hailed the progress of the project.
“Progress continues to be made on the long-awaited new Frenchman's Cay Bridge project. The temporary roadway (bridge) is completed. The old bridge is being demolished while the construction of the new bridge has commenced. This is progress for the people. Your Government Working For You,” Premier Fahie wrote on his Facebook page.
A one-lane temporary bridge has been constructed to allow access to Frenchman's Cay while the new bridge is being built.
