MOTORISTS whose vehicles fall victim to pot holes that pop up as they travel the roads of Barbados can claim up to $2 500 for tyres.

This from Michael Lashley Minister of Transport and Works, during a tour of a number of road rehabilitation projects this morning in St Philip and St Lucy.

The minister said his ministry had already settled some claims, but there was no influx.

There have been a number of concerns expressed recently about the conditions of the roads across the island.

Accompanied by his officials, Lashley conducted the road construction tours at Sealy Hall, St Philip and Peterses, St Lucy where he was joined by Minister of Housing, Lands and Rural Development Denis Kellman, representative for the northern parish.

Work on the Sealy Hall road is being done by Brathwaite’s Construction and the Peterses Road will be constructed by Infra Inc. (JS)
