A number of projects featuring on the plan of the Fast Track Committee of the Ministry of Finance will kick off this year, namely the Road Decongestion Programme, and the Smart Cities, among others.
Several roads will be constructed simultaneously as from July including phases 2 and 3 of the Ring Road that would entail a tunnel under Signal Mountain and the viaduct at Vallée-des-Prêtes.
An interchange will be constructed at Decaen street, Port-Louis, to allow drivers to have access to the capital without having to go through La Place d’Armes. Another interchange will be built at Phoenix.
Two other roads — one linking Soreze to Coromandel (A1M1) and the other connecting Coromandel to Gros-Cailloux (A1A3) — are also included in the projects.
The construction of 5 roads will cost around Rs 15 billion.
