An official opening ceremony for the Cumberland Bridge in Spring Village will be held later this month.

Following the December 2013 floods, the government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines received financial assistance from the government of Mexico for the reconstruction of the Cumberland Bridge in Spring Village along with the River Defence works in the amount of US Five Million Dollars.

The new bridge will replace the 40 year old (temporary) Bailey bridge.

The project was managed by the United Nation office for Project Services (UNOPS).

The official opening ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday March 20, 2018 at the bridge site in Spring Village.

Presentations will be made by the Ministry of Transport and Works including Minister Julian Francis, UNOPS and an official representative of the government of Mexico.

The feature address would be delivered by Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.

  1. I’m happy to see that the government of SVG is working tirelessly to provide more jobs for the citizen of SVG.
    I’m sure, as the AIA (Argyle International Airport) evolves over time, there are many more employment jobs that will be created for the people of SVG. The ‘Call Center’ is also a welcoming project and has the potential to boost the employment base in a significant way over a period of time as well.

    I don’t have any details of the ‘Cumberland Bridge’ project but I will be happy to know that, the majority of employees are Vincentian and all other goods and services required for the project be given preference to Vincentian as much as possible.
