IF BARBADOS UNDERTOOK proper inspections of its major roads and highways it would save the country some valuable money when it came to road repairs.
So says consultant engineer to Government, Grenville Phillips II, who is responsible for overseeing the Ministry of Transport, Works and Maintenance’s ongoing roadworks on the ABC Highway.
He was speaking to the DAILY NATION Tuesday night as crews from C.O. Williams Construction were digging up asphalt on the section from West Road to the streetlights at the top of Hinds Hill, St Michael, in preparation for repaving.
During the process, they discovered a number of deep cracks that had penetrated the underlying surface.
Phillips said a continuous road inspection programme would also cut down on the time it took to fix them. (SB)
