Northern Link Road

Northern Link Road is the name of the sharply winding and precipitous ascent in a steep and narrow zig-zag road in Dominica, in the Caribbean Sea. It’s a 1st gear road all the way, with an average of 10,25%.

The road has a length of 7,2 km. It starts in Penville (or Pennville), a village in Dominica's Saint Andrew Parish at an levation of 265m above the sea level.
After 2,7km, the road climbs up a mountain pass, at an elevation of 542m (1,778 ft) above the sea level. Starting from Penville, the ascent is 2,7 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 277 meters. The average percentage is 10,25%.
The road ends in Tanetane, a small village near Portsmouth, on Dominica's northwest coast. The surface of the road is asphalted. It's extremely steep with hairpins and blind corners.
