A 1.2-mile link between JFK Boulevard and Cable Beach opened November 30 in ceremonial fashion as vintage cars made the inaugural drive along its length as part of Bahamas Speed Week Revival 2012.


The new 4-lane thoroughfare, currently known as Corridor 7, provides a north-south link across New Providence.

Colin Higgs, permanent secretary, Ministry of Public Works, was first to test the new road as the passenger in a car driven by racing legend Sir Stirling Moss, honorary patron of Bahamas Speed Week. Other officials, Baha Mar executives and the media followed in other participating cars.

Fitch Ratings affirms its 'BBB-' rating on the Port of Palm Beach District's approximately $38.2 million in outstanding revenue bonds. The Rating Outlook has been revised to Stable from Negative, primarily due to the port's largest revenue generating contracts with Bahamas Celebration and Tropical Shipping which produced a combined 53 per cent of operating revenues.
