Beverley Marsh wants to know when she will be paid for the pothole damage to her car. In addition, she is crying out to have the roads fixed, especially those at Golden Grove and St Catherine in St Philip.

Marsh has a claim in the Ministry of Transport and Works (MTW) from 2015 that has not been settled. She complained that her vehicle was now a shell of itself as the pothole-filled roads continue to ravage it.

“I have to take that road four times a day, first I have to drop off the children to school and drive back on that road to get to work,” Marsh said.

It is that or the roundabout time-consuming route through several districts in the parish, but the same obtained for some of the other roads. (LK)
