Road or river?

Social Share

THE DRIVER of this Transport Board bus was one of the few brave souls who dared to drive along this road at Bowmanston, St John. Clearly, it was not an easy task.The road, which has a very deep trench and is filled with water from the recent rain, has posed difficulties for both vehicles and pedestrians.“You have to get a boat to get cross there,” said an upset resident, adding that two months had passed since Rayside Construction ceased working on the road. She added that despite calls to Rayside and the Ministry of Transport and Works (MTW), work has not resumed.Roger Gill, of Rayside’s technical department, referred the NATION to the MTW. However, up to press time we were unable to reach Permanent Secretary Lionel Nurse.Last week, residents of Padmore Village, St Philip, also complained about an unfinished road that had also been contracted to Rayside Construction.It is understood that Government will soon provide $30 million for road projects.
