20 PROJECT DESCRIPTIONChurchill Roosevelt/Uriah Butler Highway Interchange. Overall cost – TT $ 550 M Schedule – Package A 6mths Package B 18 mths Package C 12 mths. Completed to date : Package A and B. Package C construction on going, on schedule. Engineer – Cansult. Main Contractor – Vinci Grand Projects (Europe).
21 PROJECT DESCRIPTIONChurchill Roosevelt/Uriah Butler Highway Interchange.Package A Package A was completed adding an additional three (3) lane bypass, around the right turn lanes and was undertaken together with the construction of a bridge over the San Juan River.Package B On May 1st 2009, Package B, an 18-metre high & 600-metre long bridge over the CRH/UBH Intersection that runs from the vicinity of the San Juan River Bridge to Grand Bazaar was opened. The height of the bridge facilitates the separation of the East-West and North-Bound sections of the Interchange.
22 PROJECT DESCRIPTIONPackage B also included the construction of a West to South ramp, a New Diamond interchange and service roads at the Bamboo intersection. All of which are contributing factors in alleviating the traffic congestion East- West and North South routes.
23 PROJECT DESCRIPTIONPackage C Package C consists of the construction of a North to South Bridge that is located in the vicinity, south of the Churchill Roosevelt Highway / Uriah Butler Highway (CRH/UBH) Intersection. The design removes the major UBH north/south link across CRH and continues to provide service by means of an overpass. The design maintains access to Grand Bazaar Mall by an exit ramp onto a service road off of Westbound CRH and a connection to the UBH overpass accessible for traffic approaching from all directions.Princess Town to Moruga ;Sangre Grande to Toco;Penal to Guayaguayare;Manzanilla to Mayaro47km of 4 lane highway and 2.5km of 2 lane highway speed of 110km/h (70mph)

43 NATIONAL TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CENTRE 16 Vehicle Detection Systems; 10 CCTV cameras; 2 variable message signs and controls 10 intersections.
44 NATIONAL TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CENTRE Implemented May 2011Project Cost: TT$42 MillionMonitors Wrightson Road and Churchill Roosevelt Highway to its intersection with the Uriah Butler Highway.Uses three main Software- CENTRACS, OMNICAST VIEWER and CTMS.The National Traffic Management Centre was commissioned on May 11th 2011 and has been operational since. This Centre monitors the flow of Traffic from the Churchill Roosevelt Highway/Uriah Butler Highway intersection to Ana Street, Wrightson Road.
45 NATIONAL TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CENTRE- CTMS SOFTWARE The Centre utilizes three main software:‘CTMS’ software that utilizes sensors to detect queues, connect to the Variable Message Signs and generate reports on traffic data collected.The National Traffic Management Centre uses two(2) Variable message signs in order to provide motorists with relevant traffic management and safety data. Past uses include accident information and road works information. The signs, located in Aranguez and Port of Spain, aid in providing information to a large volume of the travelling public.
