Roads – R2
The development of the Wharf in Ruperts means that all goods brought to St Helena by ship in future will be entering via Ruperts. As a result a substantial volume of cargo will need to be moved from Ruperts to Jamestown (or beyond) by road.
The missing link in both of the above is the substandard width and alignment of Field Road. The poor junction at Field Road/Side Path and occasional substandard widths on Side Path. This project is intended to improve the road link between Ruperts and Jamestown to provide a safe, high quality route to serve both future freight requirements, and those of existing residents and businesses.
