Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley recently announced that Government will be conducting a road improvement exercise expected to cost around $30 million.
To that end, the NATION has started our new series ‘Fix It Mr Minister‘ which gives readers the opportunity to highlight roads which they know of and travel each day which may be in need of repair.
The reaction has been overwhelming and we are still sorting through the responses and visiting many of the problem areas. To aid in the process, we have created a Fix It Mr Minister map (below), which shows the areas that have been brought to our attention. Areas with blue icons indicate those which our news teams have visited while those with yellow icons are reader submitted which we have not been able to independently verify as yet.
This map is a work in progress and is still being updated as information comes in.
Please continue to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us which roads need fixing urgently. We thank those who have already sent in their responses, and we will act on them accordingly.
