Plan in works for concrete roads

THE MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT and Works is looking at concrete roads as a possible alternative to asphalt in order to save money.

But he has signalled that the Arawak Cement Company would not be automatically hired.

Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley said they had begun a pilot project using concrete roads and would soon determine the next step.

“We are looking at the option of cement and the durability of cement roads. The project will take place on three roads, two in St Michael and one in St Lucy. The contract has already been awarded. While Arawak has been good to us, we will go with whoever has the cheapest prices,” he said. (CA)
