Mott MacDonald providing detailed design for 20km road rehabilitation project, Dominica

Mott MacDonald is providing the detailed design for the Loubiere to Bagatelle road rehabilitation project on behalf of the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica’s Ministry of Public Works and Ports. A grant from the UK’s Department for International Development has been provided to Dominica through the Caribbean Development Bank, following significant damage caused along the road alignment as a result of Tropical Storm Erika in 2015.

The project, set over approximately 20km, will see the construction of nine new bridge structures, the rehabilitation of the road in landslide areas, road safety improvements and upgrades to existing road drainage infrastructure. The scheme will also include assessments and design of foreshore protection, including slope protection measures along the Dubuque Cliffs.

Mott MacDonald will assess the condition of existing infrastructure such as bridges, pavements, drainage and earthworks, as well as provide the detailed design for all necessary civil and structural engineering works as part of the road rehabilitation. The consultancy will also undertake environmental and social impact assessments and prepare extreme weather, environmental and social management plans, as well as contract bidding documentation.

Tom Hickson, Mott MacDonald’s project manager, said: “In addition to repairing damage caused by the tropical storm, these rehabilitation works will provide climate resilient infrastructure to support the economic and social development of the communities along the road network.”

The Loubiere to Bagatelle road rehabilitation project is due to be completed in 2019.
