Official Opening of the Valencia Bypass Road

Official Opening of the Valencia By Pass (20)1The new Valencia Bypass Road was officially opened on Friday November 28, 2014 by the Honourable Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Mrs. Kamla Persad Bissessar and the Minister of Works and Infrastructure the Honourable Dr. Suruj Rambachan.

The road is expected to assist in eliminating traffic at the Valencia junction, a nuisance that has plagued motorists travelling in that vicinity for many years.

The new road, however, brings about new routes which motorists will have to follow, depending on what direction of the country they are coming from.

Drivers are asked to follow signs on the new routes, which are as follows:
