If you go through the area Vallijee and you are caught in a traffic jam, you will simply take your troubles patiently because it is a temporary blessing in disguise in the long term.
So says Hurrydeo Bholah, Chief Project Manager of the National Development Unit, responsible for the work of channeling water down the mountain Signals to Black Sand organization. According to him, the project will avoid a repeat of the tragedy of March 30. This work should be completed in late November.
The closure of the road that runs behind the garage of the United Bus Service to reach the gateway Vallijee and is taken by many motorists and bus causes a big traffic jam on the main road. However, this is a necessity in the work undertaken by the firm Gamma Civic on behalf of the NDU.
This project, which began in April is to channel water down the 'catchment area' of the mountain to the sea signals will be remembered the damage caused by the water front of the Royal College of Port Louis in the last major floods. Thus, the water coming down from the mountain pass by Bell-Village, next to the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre, it will cross the Old Moka Road and then pass under the highway to reach Plaine Lauzun, near IBL and garage of the United Bus Service. Water comes later in the drain Vallijee to go to the Black Sea Sand where the mouth more or less natural (Rock armored embedment) will be built.
It should be noted that the width of the pipeline system at the beginning of the path of the water is five feet and towards the end it will be a width of 2.5 meters by two meters deep and reinforced concrete. The project cost is estimated at around Rs 80 million.
Moreover, with this work and the closure of the road next to the garage UBS are two options for those who need to travel in the region of Plaine Lauzun, for example Fitness Center or the National Transport Authority Central to the Central Electricity Board. The first is through the highway and the second is to take the street located just before the bridge and the bus station Vallijee leaving Port Louis. Under this project, the former bus stop located opposite the football ground Vallijee, always out of the capital, was called into operation.
