MTW to the rescue

It’s been a major talking point in recent weeks –– the poor state of this country’s roads.

And in keeping with the Ministry of Transport & Works’ (MTW) promise to repair the broken roads, a Barbados TODAY team was just in time today to see this MTW crew filling a huge pothole at the junction of Golden Ridge, St George.

    if by “rescue” you mean 5 union workers to fill a 1sqft pothole – well, I guess that’s a rescue..

    the Rasta in the top with the white tam – he’s obviously the supervisor…

    Surely you jest! I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I hope you pass back after the first heavy shower and post pictures of this “rescue”. How we get so?

    There are there to rescue, they are there to perform duties that the have neglected….it not a rescue. Where were they when the roads were developing into theSe caverns

    This is not a rescue. The frequency in which our roads have to be filled with gravel and a little tar is beyond ridiculous. As a tax payer of this country …..I beg to ask our goverment and the Ministry responsable for repairs to our roads WHAT are our road tax funds being used for???? And while on the topic the environment …..disposing of our garbage. The debushing and prompt removal of such instead of it being left at the roadside for months and allowed to wash back into our drains creating a flooding problem when it rains

    On a similar note I must say a big sincere THANK YOU to C O Williams Construction who made a valiant effort at filling the caverns that plagued the road that leads from Lears to the ABC highway. We have had several bouts of heavy rains since then and their work is holding up.

    Both I and my car thank you.
