Bath Village Bridge closer to completion
June 23, 2017

As the Bath Village Bridge gets closer to completion, on Friday June 16th concrete was poured for the walls, top slabs and sidewalks, for a new culvert bridge.

The Public Works Department (PWD) in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) is supervising the construction. According to Director of PWD, Raoul Pemberton, said the curing process for the structure is ongoing and the bridge is expected to be opened, 28 days after the concrete was poured.


In the meantime, the wing walls, apron and head wall will be constructed for the re-installation of the road. Additionally, the carriage way, new slipper drains at the entrance and exit, new pavements and proper walkways for the improved safety of pedestrians will also be constructed.


The new bridge, which will be 26 by 17 ½ feet, will measure 9 feet from the bottom. However, the internal height will be 6 ½ feet.


Junior Minister in the Ministry of Communication and Works, the Hon. Troy Liburd, lauded all who worked on the project.

On May 11th 2017, the bridge suffered structural damage which was caused by heavy rains during that night. It was demolished to prevent any further damage done to it, as it was deemed “no longer safe to cross”.
