The President of Gros Islet Minibus Association has disclosed that the association has no major concern regarding the Choc Bridge, where the Ministry of Infrastructure has detected some movement.
“For now I don’t think my members have any concern,” Danny Edward told St. Lucia Times.
Edward noted that the Choc Bridge is a significant link to the North of Saint Lucia.
As such, he said he was confident that the authorities would address any issues with the structure.
“So for me and the members, I do not think there is any major concern at this point,” the Association President stated.
He did not think the bridge issue would negatively impact Gros Islet minibus drivers who cross the structure daily.
On Tuesday, Infrastructure Minister Stephenson King disclosed remedial work would be done to address the movement detected at the Choc Bridge while asserting that there was no ‘extreme danger’.
The former Prime Minister revealed that the Ministry had completed the necessary investigation and assessment and was preparing to implement ‘intermediary’ measures.
King explained that implementing the measures would be in preparation for reconstructing the Julian R. Hunte Highway.
