Media Invitation – Opening of St. Joseph Bridge
August 27th, 2015
Official Opening of Bridge 1/12 Eastern Main Road, St Joseph
The Honourable Dr. Surujrattan Rambachan, Minister of Works and Infrastructure, invites all Media to the Official Opening of Bridge 1/12 Eastern Main Road, St Joseph at the location of the bridge on Friday 28th August, 2015 at 11AM.
The St Joseph bridge project was executed under the Bridges Reconstruction Programme (BRP) of the Bridges, Landslips and Traffic Management Unit (BLT).
In 2013, BLT conducted a condition survey which revealed that the bridge’s steel components and connections were heavily corroded.
The BRP was designed to reconstruct approximately sixty-two (62) bridges on the Ministry’s Highways Division Road Network.
The St Joseph Bridge is the twelfth bridge to have been successfully completed under the BRP.
