Couva bridge reopened

Couva residents and those traversing the B 1/1 Camden Road Bridge can expect an easier and more efficient flow of traffic from the Camden Road to the Couva Main Road, as well as an improvement in the flow and movement of traffic in the Point Lisas Industrial area and environs. 

The Bridge, formerly known as Captain Watson Bridge, was officially reopened by Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan on Wednesday.

The new bridge is a permanent structure of 31.7 m span and 7.3m width serving vehicular traffic with two lanes and facilitating pedestrian traffic with two sidewalks and concrete parapet walls and handrails.

An additional turning/deceleration lane was designed and included in the works. 

Three hundred and seventy-five metres of new road was constructed, paved with asphalt and white-lined.  New roadside drains were constructed on the project; as well as earthen, concrete box drains and concrete cascading box drains.
