Lane Excuse – Gros Islet Road Paving Completed After Removal Of Parked Vehicle

A vehicle parked at Beausejour Phase Two, Gros Islet, temporarily held up the completion of a road paving project Thursday.

Department of Infrastructure, Ports, and Transport Communications Officer Miguel Fevrier explained that the standard procedure is for the contractor to inform people who reside or work in the area about the paving and request the removal of vehicles.

“In cases where the vehicles are immobile, we would have a wrecker on hand to remove them,” Fevrier told St. Lucia Times.

He said he learned that in this case, the owner could not find the key to remove the vehicle.

“Obviously, we can’t stay and wait. These are works that need to be done, especially because asphalt needs to be used right away from the plant,” Fevrier stated.

He disclosed that the owner eventually located the key, removed the vehicle, and the contractor paved the small area that had not been done.

  1. Shows you the incompetence of the Ministry of Infrastructure!!!!!!! Yes, it is the contractor’s responsibility but you are the contactor’s BOSS! You are in charge of the contractor- you have the ultimate responsibility to ensure that the contractor does the best work and for the best value! You all always blaming contractors when you and the contractor are PART of the project team! Imagine this crap happening for a small project like this, farless for the big ones like the millenium Highway etc.

  2. Masters in Blaming others for their incompetence! Pedestrian crossing to nowhere in Vfort Freezone. After public outcry MOInfrastructure said not them blame malicious political actors.. Bad communication around the repairing of the Trois Piton-Bocage backroad- blame motorists. Roads not fixed blame the rainy season.! And the lists goes on. Zero accountability!

  3. I find we have to much derelict vehicles parked on the side of our roads and streets nowadays its getting to be a big problem.
