The project will not only improve the transportation and circulation problem but also be a lifeline for the Les Mamelles and Le Rocher community, providing them motorable road for the daily transportation especially for the school children and in case of any emergencies. This project would also lead to better handling of traffic congestion in this locality and will have maximum positive impact for the community as a whole.
