SLTA has started resuming resurfacing on Praslin as of 30th March 2022.Work began in the early morning on the Consolation road, starting at the coco-de-mer hotel and the plan is Chateau de Feuilles Hotel when completed. It is to be noted that this project is a continuation of SLTA’s intent to resurface all primary and secondary roads on Praslin, aimed at improving its maximum possible road infrastructures.
The project was put on hold late 2020 as SLTA was encountering few delays in shipment of material due to Covid -19 impacts, and due to the shift of work done to cater for other priorities given by the government of Seychelles such as work at the new jetty. Regardless, work is now back on track and it expects to be completed in 3-4 months if there are no major setbacks.
This particularly resurfacing project expects to be done approximately 3.5km of road, a significant value for Praslin Island given its size and it will most importantly improve the commute between Grand Anse and Baie Ste Anne.
