Positive response to Adopt-A-Km

Officials involved in the Adopt-A-Kilometre programme say the initiative, which was officially launched this morning, is attracting positive numbers from within corporate Barbados.

The project’s coordinator Andrew Clarke told Barbados TODAY that so far over 15 companies have committed to the initiative and others were in the process of making their decision, in terms of working with their budgets.

“We are quietly confident that we will have this stretch from the airport to Graeme Hall fully sponsored by at least mid-year. There is a monthly fee and we are encouraging companies to adopt the kilometre for a period of a year, and then what we do is coordinate the maintenance side of it. The companies do not actually get involved in that side of it,” he said.

“We have met with over a dozen small firms and individuals.”

Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley said the project had started with a bang, based on the number of companies that already signed up.

“I am pleased thus far by the response, and [this] can only go from strength to strength,” he told Barbados TODAY.
