King Urges Motorists To Give Road Construction Crew The Thumbs Up

Castries North MP, Stephenson King, has urged motorists to give workers on the Morne Du Don to Balata Road Reconstruction Project the thumbs up when in the area.

“I am extremely happy about this project, which brings an end to years of talk about upgrading the “northern backroads,” the former Prime Minister disclosed last week on his official Facebook page.

“My Government of #Workers has shown again that we know how to get the job done. So whilst they talk, we work – better than they ever have,” he declared in what appeared to be a swipe at the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).

King observed that  the Morne Du Don to Balata Road Reconstruction Project has become a priority given the high influx of new vehicles into Saint Lucia.

He noted that these popular backroads serve as an important alternative to the busy city commute and traffic congestion.

According to the Minister of Infrastructure, Ports, Energy and Labour, the project scope includes road widening and realignment, complete reconstruction of approximately 2349 meters of road and construction of drainage and retaining walls.

He observed that the project will create an estimated seventy full-time jobs throughout its duration.

“The current crew of workers are full of energy and vibes. Be sure to give them the thumbs up when next you drive-by. I would also like to encourage drivers to pay attention to the signs and proceed with caution when traversing the project site,” King wrote on his official Facebook page.


  1. Just so you looking for recognition. Choops! Job for the boys and you want be to big them up too.

  2. Reconstruction for reconstruction sake
    What about improving the Carellie junction and the Balata junction along that road and the narrow part of the road caused by the newly installed fence near the Carellie junction.
    It’s time for road reconstruction, safety and improvement and less resurfacing.
    This approach will save money in the long term.

  3. King you serious … That’s cheap politics . guess only now ppl deserves thumbs up . how about the CCC workers who face health hazards everyday …smh

  4. Some people don’t appreciate nothing. You don’t do anything and so much to say. You do and there is every problem. May God help us all and show his mercy on this country. The eyes of the lord is every where

  5. Don’t think King typed that nonsense. This road construction looks like madness. Ppl everywhere, open trenches, dusts etc. All am interested in is the final product and 10yrs after it. Hope it’s not sub standard cause the Project Management already looks like madness.

  6. Wow. SLP supporters showing their true colours. They look for every opportunity to insult, slander and use obscenity at people. These people are real dayclarsae- typical labour party supporters. They only have to open their mouths and one would know who they support.
    I want to remind them that as usual a few labour party supporters making a lot of noise, do not translate to an election win. The silent majority is watching and listening to all of your noises but their voices will be heard in silence on election day. Silence is golden. That’s the power of silence
