NRA tolds Island wide survey

The National Roads Authority (NRA) is carrying out an Island wide comprehensive survey of traffic flow along Grand Cayman’s roads. The study returns after 17 years of hiatus.

Transportation Planner for the NRA, Marion Pandohie, says the a lack of resources and man power has prevented the study to be done on such a large scale. The last survey on par with what the NRA is currently doing was done back in 1999. Mrs Pandohie says as Grand Cayman continues to develop the government needs to properly plan for the future, and road construction and maintenance needs to be apart of that thought process.

“The collection of this data is very important in relation to our day to day projects that we are working on, as well as fundamental input into traffic demand and operational models that we are currently working, on that we want to have online by the end of 2016,” said Pandohie.

In recent years the NRA has commissioned similar studies, however nothing on scale to what is being done. The time line for the data gathering process is expected to take several weeks.
