Renewed Complaints About Guyabois Road In Saltibus


The Guyabois Road in Saltibus, which residents dubbed the worst maintained in Saint Lucia last year, continues to deteriorate, prompting renewed complaints.

One artist had disclosed that due to the state of the road, she had to shelve plans to construct an art studio.

Other residents lamented that emergency vehicles cannot access their homes, farmers cannot tend to their crops, and the community’s garbage collection has been affected.

Retired United Kingdom paramedic Pierre Reeson and his wife operate a guest cottage in the community.

But Reeson told the St. Lucia Times the couple can’t do much with the business because people cannot access it due to the road’s condition.

Reeson said they had received many promises to upgrade the road.

“It is impossible in places,” he explained.

In December last year, the Ministry of Infrastructure, citing the declaration of 2024 as the Year for Infrastructure, indicated that plans for the Guyabois Road and other roadways would proceed once funding was available.

Reeson has invited officials to travel the Guyabois Road to get first-hand experience and do something constructive.

Tyre pierced by stone.

He presented photographs showing the road’s condition, including an image of a stone that pierced his vehicle tyre on Monday night.

“Six years ago, they redid the drainage, and the road is now so far below the drains that the water can’t go anywhere, so it just washes the surface away,” he lamented.

Reeson told the St. Lucia Times that Guyabois Road is about two and a half miles long, and ninety-nine percent of it is bad.

  1. Anybody could have done it, but no body did..
    Everybody thaught Anybody could do it, but nobody realise that Everybody would do it..
    It ended up that Everybody blame Somebody when Nobody did what Nobody could have done…
    Red,yellow,Green,Blue,Pink,Black or White ❓

  2. Sadly, Promisees usually turn out to be Misses. It is like missing the Prom at high school, and you know the feeling when that happens.

  3. I have walked that road (or tried to) it is dreadful. No lighting, holes everywhere, I nearly fell a few times and that’s on foot so god knows how a vehicle can drive it.
    They want our votes? I don’t think so. They don’t care about the people just their own pockets….. Shame on you all.

  4. It’s abundantly clear that those in charge simply don’t give a **** about the people. With each passing week it becomes more and more apparent

    The families on this road need help. The farmers who use this road need help. People of the community who use this road need help. ANYONE willing to lend a hand, contractors, backhoe owners or companies, contact St Lucia News team because the government don’t want to help.

  6. @Fedup you are right. Gather together community people & resources & do it yourselves because it it clear the Government doesnt care. Ask Government provide funds & provide your own labour. Go straight to the top & dont bother with departmental managers. A community delegation to the relevant Minister/s. It is your right. Exercise them!
