Road to ‘Hell’ paved with more than good intentions

| 08/06/2010

(CNS): Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians should all enjoy their journey to ‘Hell’ more in future as the National Roads Authority (NRA)’s improvement plans press on. Officials said this week that the entire project is scheduled for completion by mid-August. The first phase which NRA staff are currently working on includes the widening and re-paving of Hell Road, from Watercourse Road and the Watercourse/Hell Road intersection, to Fountain Road. This will give road users two 12ft vehicular lanes, plus two 3ft bicycle lanes. The NRA will also install a curb and sidewalk along the Fountain and Hell roads, from the multi-purpose hall to the Town Hall.

The second phase of the project will focus on improving the Hell, Town Hall/Rev. Blackman Road intersection. There are big plans for the future of Hell Road as it is slated to become the major East-West collector road for West Bay, and will eventually connect the Morgan’s Harbour end of the Esterley Tibbetts Highway to the Boatswain Bay area.

    That’s really nice that they are finally improving the road, But isn’t the real reason that they are improving the road is so that Dart’s Gigantic Tourist buses can get through the road from the Boatswain Beach to Hell.
