Drainage study needed for Simpson Bay Streets

The Street behind the Sister Regina School and the one along the perimeter fence of the Princess Juliana International Airport will be reconstructed with a proper drainage system being put into place, but some emergency works will be carried out to make the roads passable.

A drainage study needs to be carried out in order to properly address the drainage issues in the area. Once this has been done, a proper drainage system can be put in place and the streets can be reconstructed.

Many of the properties and inner roads are below the present drainage level of the airport road and this is causing the problem. The elevation levels need to be studied and the relevant infrastructure put in place.

"It is the intention and vision of the Ministry to develop a more reliable infrastructure with respect to our roads. It is our responsibility to research what future road infrastructure will look like.

"Our road infrastructure and inner community streets must be able to meet our growing transportation needs, in a safer, more effective and comfortable way.

"I envision every road and street in this country must be paved and have all the facets of sustainability by the end of this decade," Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Public Housing, Spatial Development, Environment and Infrastructure Hon. Theo Heyliger said on Sunday.
