ABC Highway
The ABC Highway is the main urban highway in Barbados. Opened in 1989, it is named after three famous Barbadian politicians: John Michael Geoffrey Manningham Adams, Errol Barrow, and Hugh Gordon Cummins. From the east, the highway stretches from the Grantley Adams International Airport in Christ Church, to the western end at Cave Hill Road and University Drive, Cave Hill Campus, University of the West Indies, in Saint Michael. It roughly encircles the Parish of Saint Michael and wider metropolitan area of Bridgetown.
The highway consist of both two-lane and dual carriageway sections with at-grade intersections, mostly roundabouts. A 2006–2007 expansion project enlarged some sections and there was some public sentiment voiced in local media about the project's lack of a competitive tender process or studies to justify costs.





The ABC Highway provides relative ease of access to the Deep Water Harbour in Bridgetown. At the official western terminus, the road becomes University Drive (at Cave Hill). The road proceeds to the Frank Worrel roundabout where it has a junction with Highway 1 and Spring Garden Highway. From the Frank Worrel roundabout, direct access to the harbour is available via the Spring Garden Highway. At the end of Spring Garden Highway, direct access to the port is accessed by turning right onto President Kennedy Drive.

Bridgetown urban roads

Bridgetown has around 100.000 inhabitants in a 40 Km2 area. All seven of Barbados's primary Highways begin close to the City of Bridgetown, in the Parish of Saint Michael. They all fan out to the north, south and east to other parts of the island. Driving is done of the left-hand side of the road with a speed limit of 60 km/h in built-up areas. The speed limit on the ABC Highway is generally 80 km/h except in built-up areas.
