Convent Street will be the first of many connecting road arteries around the perimeter of the capital.

This was revealed by Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi at the opening of the $3.9 million road at Tauese last Friday.

Said Prime Minister Tuilaepa,

“These roads are not being built for elections every five years. They are being built for the next fifty years. We are laying down the road infrastructure for the future of the capital city and Apia environs.”

The Prime Minister said another road being planned, includes a connecting artery through the Marist Brother School to Togafu’afu’a.

“The vision is to develop the necessary infrastructure to support the future growth of the city.”

The Convent Street project was built in two phases. The first phase was from the corner of Matafele Street to the Marist Brothers Bridge contracted to King Construction at a cost of $1.6 million. The second phase completed the road to Leifiifi Street – through the Police Station. This was contracted to Ulia Construction.

“The road had to be lifted a few meters as this whole area is underwater and experiences heavy flooding during the wet season,” said Tuilaepa.

Total cost of the 340-meter road was put at $3.9 million.
