The public is invited to review and comment on the Terms of Reference for the Environmental Impact Assessment of the East-West Arterial Extension from Woodland Drive to Frank Sound Road. The Terms of Reference have been developed by the project proponent, the National Roads Authority, in collaboration with the Environmental Assessment Board which includes representatives from the Department of Environment, Department of Planning, Water Authority Cayman and the Public Works Department.
