Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

As stated by the CDB, this project will rehabilitate 8.7 km of major road to improve efficiency, resilience, safety and accessibility along the Sir George Walter Highway and Friars Hill Road in Antigua. These roads are used by 75% of the population and serve as primary arteries, linking the capital St. John's, the airport, and many of the island's tourism attractions. This upgrade will provide a major boost to commercial and economic activity on the island. The project will also strengthen the institutional capacity of the Ministry of Works and Housing by upgrading the materials laboratory; training ministerial staff in pavement design, construction, and maintenance; and helping the Ministry to better integrate social and gender issues in infrastructure projects.
