Development of Riche Terre roundabout
19 February 2011
Buildings works is currently in progress at the roundabout of Riche Terre. This is the first phase of the expanding the road.
An overpass will be constructed there in the nearest future. In this region road traffic is expected to rise in a couple of years, especially with the operation of the industrial mega project Jin Fei in 2015 according to a study commissioned by the Road Development Authority and the firm Luxconsult Ltd so an overpass is building to manage it.
The feasibility report states that when the industrial zone of Jin Fei starts, an increase in traffic will become unavoidable.
The Luxconsult report said, “The Jin Fei project will be a long term development and traffic will increase as the zone is developed and the related economic activities gain momentum. But it is only in 2015 that noticeable traffic will be generated by Jin Fei and traffic demand will occur around the year 2020.”
The first stage of Jin Fei will be finished in 2012 and the second in 2015. The second stage of 141 hectares will be delivered in 2015.
