DIPU suspends road paving programme in Tobago East

The road paving programme of the Tobago House of Assembly in the eastern districts of Pembroke, Glamorgan and Belle Garden will be suspended from Friday, February 17 to Tuesday, February 28, due to Carnival celebrations.

According to a media release issued by the Division of Infrastructure and Public Utilities, the road paving programme will resume in Pembroke, Glamorgan and Belle Garden on Wednesday 29th February.

The Division is also asking that motorists exercise extreme caution on the newly-paved Windward Road and stay within the speed limit.

...and the Bloody Bay-Roxborough Road, is it ever going to be paved? it's the only road for villagers to travel to and from school/ATM/government offices/health center, and for fire trucks...and the L'Anse Fourmi-Charlotteville road which has been in a total state of disrepair, multi slips, fallen trees, and deteriorating daily since OCTOBER much longer until it's properly paved???

Yes Bagonian, I quite agree with your post. We live in the Northside area and I must emphazise that our roads are such dilapitaded condition that I wonder if the representative for the area have us in mind. They are fixing all the other roads and we are not hearing anything about the Lanse Fourmi/Charlotteville and the Bloody Bay road but still they are expecting us to vote them back in office. We don't really want the TOP but the PNM has to show us that they care and are concern about our well-being otherwise we would have no choice but to vote them out of office.

You see how we are? They cuss you when you pave, they cuss you when you ent pave. I'm sure those roads will eventually get paved, the TOP tell dey flock to tek the pave and vote them out. Tobago has some of the best roads in the West Indies, but unfortunately we don't appreciate it.
