Quatre Bornes

Quatre Bornes, town (“township”) on the island of Mauritius, in the western Indian Ocean. It lies in the western highlands region of the country, about 9 miles (14 km) south of Port Louis, the national capital. Quatre Bornes (French: “Four Boundaries”) was named for the boundary stones that marked the limits of four large sugar estates once situated there. Sugarcane is still produced in the surrounding areas as an important crop. Quatre Bornes is a fast-growing, mainly middle-class urban centre with a town council, and it has a large government hospital. A surfaced road links the town with the highway connecting Port Louis and Vacoas-Phoenix. Pop. (2005 est.) 79,558.
