Kellman suggests solution to water and transport problems

Member of Parliament for St Lucy Denis Kellman believes he has the cure to the water problems affecting his constituents, but says it is now up to the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) to heed his advice.

Addressing a branch meeting of his ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) at his Pie Corner constituency office last night, Kellman said he had submitted a number of proposals to the BWA for consideration, adding that he hoped his ideas would be considered and the problems corrected as soon as the utility company had the financial resources to do so.

“Not only [do] we have problems with the pipes, we have problems with the reservoirs, we have problems with the metres, we have problems with everything as it relates to water authority,” said Kellman, who went on to heap blame on the former Barbados Labour Party administration which last held power from 1994 to 2008.

“One would have thought that when things were alleged to be good in 2003 that all of those problems would have been corrected, but it so happens that they weren’t corrected,” he told the gathering of DLP supporters.

Noting that the water system in his constituency was a “very complex” one, Kellman pointed out that once a problem occurred in the Alleynedale area “everybody in St Lucy is in trouble”.

He therefore said one of his solutions was to run a water main from Alleynedale to Boscobel, St Peter.

“And I am hoping that when they [the BWA] get money they are able to correct this problem,” Kellman said.

“We also have some valves that must be corrected. There is a valve that must be corrected by Glendalough. Glendalough is out of water while Josey Hill is getting water. The water passes Glendalough, it goes to Lamberts, then comes back to Glendalough. So that is something we have to correct,” the St Lucy representative explained.

“In my opinion what you need is just three valves to correct these problems. So I am hoping that those who I have put forward these things to, that they listen,” he added.

Kellman also offered a solution to the transportation woes in the north of the island, saying there should be only one Speightstown-bound bus service from Bridgetown and “when it gets to Speightstown that is when it should be filtering out” to other parts of the north.

    So wait, people catching buses from Bridgetown only live in Speightstown?

    As to the water woes they should have started fixing those first before the big able building in the Pine.

    The thing about being a clown is that it takes one to know the other.
    One should never compromise their integrity and more so for cheap politics.
    We can disagree but never degenerate to the gutter.
