Key access road to Mahdia badly needs fixing-Region Eight Chairman
Region Eight’s Chairman, Mark Crawford, is accusing the Ministry of Public Works of turning a blind eye on the deplorable road which starts from Brian Sucre Junction and leads into Mahdia.
According to Crawford, the road has been in a terrible state for years and despite complaints, the authorities have been deaf.
He said that a few months back, after numerous complaints, the maintenance and repairing of the road finally went to tender. MMC Construction Company and BK International both submitted bids.
“So long, and no work haven’t started as yet. I called the Minister (Robeson Benn of Public Works) and he said he cannot give an answer when work will start,” the Chairman said.
Kaieteur News was told that drivers, who use the 15-Mile Road often, are complaining that their vehicles are badly damaged every time they use it. Calls to Minister Benn’s phone went unanswered yesterday.
