Road repairs in the works


Share post:

SOME OF WHAT Prime Minister Freundel Stuart calls the more poorly maintained roads in Barbados are being repaired under a new $6.5 million programme.

These include roads in the heavily-populated Bayville and Waterhall Land areas of St Michael.

Today Prime Minister Stuart toured the two areas with Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley. He said not only would residents have better roads but the chances of flooding would be minimised through the programme.

Roads will also be repaired in the parishes of St Lucy, St George, Christ Church and St Philip. Four construction companies, including C.O. Williams Construction Limited and Rayside Construction Limited, are involved. (TY)
