Chairman of the Diego Martin Regional Corporation (DMRC) Siglar Jack pooh pooh-ed naysayers, sharing his pride in the construction of a highway interchange being constructed to facilitate traffic access between Diego Martin and north-west Trinidad.
In a social media post shared by the DMRC, Jack said the Diego Martin Interchange will accommodate traffic “24/7” without the need for traffic lights:
“It is with a Deep sense of Pride as Chairman of the Diego Martin Regional Corporation and as a Burgess of this Region in excess of 50 years, to this morning bear witness to the advancement of the Diego Martin Interchange as it takes shape and form. I also want to advise our Burgesses, that the design layout was done so as to accommodate a free flow of traffic 24/7 and without the need for traffic lights.”
“I also want to take this opportunity to thank our visionaries who Conceptualized the West Park project which also includes, a Recreational Space (not yet officially opened to the public, the New Administration Building of the DMRC and a Museum, a work still in its development stage, which will showcase the development and history of our Region.”
“Regardless of the perennial naysayers, Diego Martin Marches on. Happy 60th Independence Anniversary Diego Martin as we forge onward and upwards.”
Over the weekend traffic was diverted to facilitate this element of the project and part of the Diego Martin Highway was closed to the public (with the exception of residents in the area) from August 27 at 10pm to August 29 at 3am.
The project is being done by the The National Infrastructure Development Company Limited (NIDCO) and the Ministry of Works and Transport.
