The second phase of the Ring Road will involve the construction of two tunnels, and the Terre-Rouge-Verdun road will be subject to more tests before reparation works can begin.
Two tunnels instead of one. The minister of Public Infrastructure, Nando Bodha, has announced that thus has the initial plan been modified to accommodate for his new ideas that budded off during his recent visit to South Korea. Experts from the country will soon arrive in Mauritius for the same purpose.
The change in the construction project –from a two-lane tunnel to two tunnels –is being made as a security measure to protect from flooding, fires, or road accidents, according to l’Express.mu.
Nando Bodha also says in a statement to l’Express.mu that new tests will be made for the Terre-Rouge-Verdun road before reparation works start.
