Churchill 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).
Churchill 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.
Package 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.
Package 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. PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project will also improve the road network in the South West Region, providing connectivity to the main population centres such as Debe, Penal, Siparia, Fyzabad and Point Fortin.
The project involves the construction of a 4-lane divided highway to international freeway standards and comprises several segments of length totaling 47 km of 4-lane highway and 2.5 km of 2-lane highway (excluding ramps but including connector roads). The highway has been designed to freeway standards with a design speed of 110 km/hr (70 mph) other features include: Golconda Interchange Debe Interchange Penal Interchange
