Freeport, Bahamas -- Grand Bahama's roadways are considered amongst the best in the region, and the best in The Bahamas. Detailed signage, easy to navigate roadways with pristinely kept verges, are just some of the details one can expect while driving along the city's well maintained thoroughfares.
According to Mr. Troy McIntosh, City Maintenance and Management Manager, for The Grand Bahama Port Authority, Limited (GBPA) this is the result of detailed inspections, planning and preventative maintenance. "Grand Bahama's roadway systems are immaculate and well maintained," McIntosh shared.
"As part of a day-to-day inspection routine, we drive throughout the city making note of areas requiring upgrades, repairs or resurfacing. We then determine, which areas are priority for work to begin," he continued. The City of Freeport is beautifully planned, with world class amenities and infrastructure, all at no cost to The Bahamas' Public Treasury.
Responsibility for its maintenance and upkeep falls within the City Maintenance and Management Department of GBPA Most recently, the 'Port' completed a number of upgrades in the areas of the Mall Drive, beginning at RND Circle and onward to Ranfurly Circus. The upgrades included more than 1500 feet of newly constructed and refurbished sidewalks, improved drainage, road stripping, street side curbing and landscaping.
