Bahamian Road Builder Passes

A well-known road builder passed away yesterday.

Many in the political and construction industry are mourning the passing of Basil Ospert Neymour.

Neymour is a renowned contractor, who is credited with building the East/West Highway in New Providence.

In a press release, Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) Chairman Bradley Roberts said Neymour was also a sportsman and philanthropist “as he always gave back to a country he openly acknowledged had done so much for him.”

“One of the more cherished and popular monuments to his skilled handiwork as a road builder is the East/West Highway, one of the first major thoroughfares constructed by the PLP government during its formative years. Basil would always proudly hold that highway as the standard for all road construction projects in this country,” Mr. Roberts said.

“As a politician, Mr. Neymour carried the banner for the Progressive Liberal Party for the Pineridge Constituency. The PLP thanks him for his contributions and faithful service.”

Neymour was the father of former State Minister for the Environment Phenton Neymour.
