Construction work on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway Extension continues to progress under the supervision of the NRA.
This week Jairam Building Contractors will install arch units for a bridge on the section of highway between Raleigh Quay and Yacht Drive. The bridge is part of the Esterley Tibbetts Highway Extension lans approved by the NRA. The bridge will allow current or future developers to connect the existing system of roads and canals.
Dart Realty (Cayman) Ltd confirmed, "We always planned for a bridge to be included as it allows future connectivity to the redeveloped Courtyard Marriot hotel and any other hotels that may be developed n the area. The bridge will allow pedestrians, golf carts and, subject to normal planning approvals for aterways, boats to travel under the ETH. The bridge is similar to the one at the Ritz-Carlton, except
that it is slightly higher. Despite speculation there is no drawbridge being installed."
When completed, the Esterley Tibbetts Highway Extension will assist with traffic management, storm water mitigation and long-term development planning on Grand Cayman.
