When is a pothole really deep? When it is so deep it can almost swallow a pencil.
And that’s the situation at Deane’s Land, My Lord’s Hill, St Michael, where residents say the last time the road was worked on was when it was first paved in the 1980s. At that time the representative of the constituency (St Michael East) was Dr Don Blackman.
Resident Rico Blenman said the approximately 100-metre-long pothole-filled stretch had set him back $1 300. That was how much he had to pay to replace the broken rims on his car.
“Right now, it really, really bad. I would like something to happen to the road. I don’t know when that will happen but I would like it happen as soon as possible,” he said.
The road at Deane’s Land, My Lord’s Hill, was just one of dozens about which the Nation Newspaper’s new series, Fix It, Mr Minister, received calls yesterday. (HLE)
