Cheaper roads


Share post:

THE ARAWAK CEMENT COMPANY LIMITED is ready and waiting to solve the country’s pothole issues.

The island’s largest cement maker plans to pump US$50 million into the Barbadian economy this year, but general manager Manuel Toro has also revealed they could save Government almost that amount as well.

Toro revealed Arawak has the equipment to build special concrete roads that would last in excess of 20 years before needing repairs, and could save Government millions of dollars it currently spends on asphalt, which has a much shorter life.

In a recent interview with the SUNDAY SUN he said the St Lucy-based company had already initiated dialogue with the Ministry of Transport and Works, to get a possible concrete road agreement worked out.

Please read the full story in today’s Sunday Sun, or in the eNATION edition.
