Dhiren Ponnusamy, Medine’s CEO, and Joel Bruneau, Managing Director of the Group’s Property arm, have signed an agreement with the Road Development Authority (RDA) to build the Pierrefonds to Cascavelle section of the Flic-en-Flac Bypass.
The road will significantly improve access to the West and its surrounding areas. It represents a major new axis linking the West to the Centre and to the rest of Mauritius. Works on the road are expected to start in 2023 and complete in end 2024.
This is a game-changer for the West. It will benefit all of the region’s communities and users, as well as its commercial, real estate and hospitality sectors.
Medine has contributed over MUR 1Bn towards the cost of the East-West connector overall, including 162 arpents of land. The group and its consultants also designed and engineered the Pierrefonds-Cascavelle section of the Flic-en-Flac Bypass. It is the largest contribution to a road project by a private sector player in Mauritius to date.
As a group that is committed to integrated, sustainable development, we’re very proud to be playing such a significant role in a project of national interest.
