Airport Road Connector

Airport Road Connector

The Airport Connector is a planned 4-lane divided, two (2) mile long highway that is to provide a direct link between the Owen Roberts Airport and the Esterley Tibbetts Highway.

Section 1 of the ACR which extends from the Esterley Tibbetts Highway to Alie B Drive is now just a few weeks away from completion. Section 1 costs approximately $10.2M.

By the end of October 2023 motorists will we able to access North Sound Road and the Esterley Tibbetts Highway using Section 1 of the ACR, Alie B Drive, Lincoln Dr and Sparky Drive as illustrated below:



Section 3 of the ACR will be completed in 2024 providing additional alternative access adjacent to the George Town Yacht Club.

The NRA is also actively working on providing a link road from Lincoln Drive to Seymour Road that will serve to relieve the congestion currently experienced at the intersection of Seymour Road and North Sound Road by Canon Place.

Shamrock Road Six Lane Widening

Shamrock Road Six Lane Widening

Hurley Merren and Crewe Road Widening project (6 lanes) is a complex multi-phase road development project that involves increase of lane capacity on the primary arterials and at intersections supporting these arterials.

The project began in 2019 with 3 lane upgrades to the Grand Harbour Roundabout, Red Bay Roundabout and Chrissie Tomlinson Roundabout.  The CUC Roundabout at Kings Sports Centre is also scheduled for a major upgrade starting in early 2023.

Travel lane expansion for roadways in between is being carried out in segments as the process requires complex relocation of utilities and the removal and replacement of boundary walls, fences, etc.
