The President of the National Council on Public Transportation (NCOPT) has expressed concern over the slow pace of roadworks on the Millennium Highway to Cul de Sac project.
“In our opinion, there seems to be no urgency in finishing that project,” Godfrey Ferdinand told St. Lucia Times.
“We believe that more should be done now before the rainy season starts because we wouldn’t want to hear the excuse – ‘It’s because it’s raining that roadworks can’t be done’,” the NCOPT President stated.
He appealed to the authorities to expedite the work.
“We don’t see people working at night. We don’t see people working on holidays, so that in itself shows there’s no real hurry to finish and meanwhile, our members are suffering,” Ferdinand explained.
He noted that the poor road condition contributes to vehicle wear and tear.
Ferdinand also appealed to the authorities to block road potholes before the rainy season starts to improve Saint Lucia’s road network.
