Infrastructure Department Cautions Motorists After Staff Member Dies In Road Accident


The Department of Infrastructure, Ports and Transport is deeply saddened by the loss of one of our members of staff.

Valence “Trini” Alexander passed away tragically on Monday February 27th, as a result of a motor vehicular accident.

Alexander was employed with the DIPT’s Road Maintenance (Potholing) Unit from 2018 until his passing.

“Trini’ as he was lovably called, was dedicated to his daily duties, and treasured by all his co-workers.

Road Maintenance Supervisor Vaughan Edwin described Alexander as the “best worker” in his Unit.

The Department of Infrastructure expresses our deepest condolences to the relatives, loved ones and co-workers of Valence “Trini” Alexander in their time of bereavement.

The DIPT also wishes to take the opportunity to urge the general and motoring public to pay heed to the signage and other cautionary devices installed when traversing areas where road works and maintenance are being undertaken.

  1. dont blame the motorists blame your department cause if the roads were being properly maintained and on time with all our tax money we paying at transport board then he would not be there pot holeing holes

  2. Is his license suspended until the case is heard? What is the vehicle number? these things are essential to the public.

  3. But why my people like to make stupid comments like that. Pray tell, how are the roads supposed to be properly maintained if not by fixing the potholes. If our drivers would learn to exercise caution on the roads and follow traffic signs, this tragedy would not have occurred. The Minister of Infrastructure, in the House of Assembly, said that the driver overtook vehicles that had stopped, maybe to allow the workers time to get out of the way. This reckless driver came and knocked down the man. He disobeyed the traffic signs. Stop playing politics with everything. My family is in mourning because of this person’s reckless choices not because of the government. He will get his due justice.

  4. Sorry for your loss Norma. Ignore the negative comments. This is not the forum to display such ridiculous reasoning lucian highgrade. For someone to meet his/her demise in such a way is extremely sad. The driver of the vehicle in question should rightfully be brought to justice.
