Government tackles deteriorating roads

The Ministry of Public Works has begun to tackle the issue of deteriorating roads caused by persistent rainfall.

On Wednesday the Cabinet heard from the Public Works Director who explained that the country has been divided into four zones and road rehabilitation teams have been deployed in the zones to tackle the deteriorating roads.

Government Chief of Staff Lionel Hurst while speaking during an interview confirmed that repair work on several roads have begun highlighting a road in Cashew hill which was the subject of much debate.

In late 2016 the Government announced plans to undertake a major Road Project in 2017 aimed at improving the current state of roads within the country; however the project is yet to progress in full force.

Hurst said that while constraints of both material and manpower can slow the repair work, rainfall that causes work at the quarries to come to a halt can also slow down the progress.
