Government Continues to Improve Road Network says Minister Blackmoore
Honourable Rayburn Blackmoore, Minister responsible for Public Works, Energy & Ports, says, the Government is continuing its efforts to improve our road networks Island-wide, as this is a critical aspect in commerce, which is important to the development of any economy.
He said during an audit of roads Island-wide they had a clear idea of what needs to be done.
Mr. Blackmoore added, although they have spoken about the West Coast road, the airport road and the Roseau Valley road, there are some very important roads in the rural communities that need to be addressed.
In Lalay located in Grand Bay, work is expected to begin very soon, to include the construction of concrete drains, sidewalks and asphalting of the carriage way of that road, from Stowe going all the way back to the Pierre Charles Boulevard.
Road work will also begin in Portsmouth in various areas including; Rodney Street and Harbour Lane to include resurfacing of the roads, and the installation of concrete drains and sidewalks.
The roads in Picard leading to the Tomato area will also receive attention.
“We have just finished the actual installation of sidewalks and concrete drains in the Lagon and Portsmouth area.”
He added, very soon the Government will begin rehabilitating kilometers of feeder roads under the Banana Accompanying Measures – BAM Project.
