Mayor Welcomes Saint Lucia Roads Safety Assessment Project

Mayor of Castries, Peterson D. Francis has praised the Islandwide Roads Safety Assessment Project, declaring that it has his full support.

According to a release from his office, Francis attended the formal launch of the project on Thursday March 14, 2019 at the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ports, Energy and Labour in Union.

The project is aimed at determining what interventions are necessary to deliver safer roads for all road users across Saint Lucia, the release observed.

The initiative has seen the installation of more traffic and directional signs around the island, a road markings programme and the installation of more vehicle guardrails.

Mayor Francis was quoted as saying that the International Road Assessment Programme will not only provide safer roads and save lives, but will also benefit the City of Castries.

He lamented the loss of lives annually due to road accidents.

“I am very pleased that the Government has invested in the evidence-based approach that would eventually save lives. When productive citizens are injured in road accidents it places a burden on our healthcare sector and is anti-development. I am looking forward to a lot more interventions to guide and protect our motorists, particularly within Castries,” said Mayor Francis.

  1. All welcomed. Especially the road markings. But awa for those guys marking the highway. A 2 year old with absolutely no hand eye coordination would paint better lines than those guys. The road look looks like a Picasso. Mediocrity at its finest.
