The new construction will be a 2-lane road of a 3.50 m lane width and shoulders of 2.50 m width on each side, an underpass for pedestrians, numerous culvert and three road junctions.

The Contractor during the month September 2019 has continued with the construction of the pipe and box culvert.

During the month June 2019 there was a problem with the permit and license to operate borrow pit and the Contractor has been stopped from taking material from this borrow pit until the permit and license has been renewed. The Contractor would provide to the Employer and Engineer for the cost obtaining fill material from another offsite location
