The large roundabout by the Hyatt, on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway, will soon receive a facelift now that it’s been adopted by Thompson Development Ltd.
Company representatives signed a contract finalising the agreement with the Ministry of Communications, Works and Infrastructure on 19 April, said a GIS press release.
Over the next five years, Thompson Development will enhance the roundabout by landscaping and maintaining it. They also will landscape and maintain the traffic island at the mini roundabout, beside Galleria Plaza on West Bay Road.
‘Thompson Development is extremely pleased to participate in this programme with government,’ Thompson Development Director Gene Thompson said. ‘We have always prided ourselves on developing projects that involve beautifully landscaped grounds that can be shared with residents and visitors alike.’
He added, ‘We are looking forward to using a theme that will incorporate Cayman’s natural beauty, and to creating a visually pleasing experience for those who use this roundabout.’
This adoption is a continuation of government’s partnership with private and charitable organisations. The objective is to encourage improvements in the landscaping and visual appearance of certain locations on or near highways, and on public roads across the Islands, the release said.
Signing on behalf of the ministry were Chief Officer Carson Ebanks and Administrative Officer Troy Jacob, while Thompson Development Directors Kel and Gene Thompson signed on behalf of their company.
