Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has declared that the government is delivering the most comprehensive road rehabilitation programme in Saint Lucia’s history, creating jobs in the process.
“As our Government delivers the most comprehensive Road rehabilitation Programme in our history, the constituency of Gros Islet is the largest beneficiary under this programme,” he asserted on his official Facebook page.
According to Chastanet, a major concern which Saint Lucians, in particular the constituents of Gros Islet, expressed prior to his administration assuming office in 2016, was the deplorable condition of many of the roads across the constituency.
“Every Monday, Hon. Lenard Spider Montoute has made it his duty to lobby and remind myself and the Cabinet of Ministers of his promise to remedy this long standing issue,” he stated.
The PM noted that the most recent project to be completed in Gros Islet were the rehabilitation of Palm Drive, Flambouyant Drive and Orchid Drive.
He explained that these projects have created much needed jobs, reduced the cost of vehicle maintenance, reduced travelling time for motorists whilst increasing the value of properties within the communities.
