It seems the Public Works Department has scrapped a plan to expand airport road into a four-lane highway.
That’s according to Works and Housing Minister Eustace “Teco” Lake.
Lake says the new plan is to expand airport road into a three-lane highway.
Lake says the cost of four lanes was simply too high.

A suite of road works is being funded through a British grant of several million pounds being disbursed through the Caribbean Development Bank – C.D.B.
There were hopes that repairs to 42 miles of road could be done with the funds.
That plan was scaled down to repairs to two major roads – airport road and Friar’s Hill Road.

Members of the Public Works Department have been appearing at Cabinet meetings almost weekly to report on preparations for the road project.
Lake gave his own update.
