    Thanks DOWASCO for the information. It is sad that the Utility companies have to take on that expense and road users have to go through that inconvenience now. All because of the incompetence, lack of planning, coordination and proper, prudent and fiscal management by this government facilitated by weak PS’s such as the PS of Works at the Time. The biggest most blatant lie in all this was when it is said that this is part of the ongoing Roseau enhancement project and other roads and sidewalks are to follow. Well months are passing by and no such improvements works are seen to be continuing. The truth is, the government decided to resurface the carnival route to impress returning Dominicans and in the process, covered every damn manhole without regard! Now the consumers and tax payer has to pay to remedy this incompetence while roads users are being inconvenience. Yet another case of wasteful government facilitated by PS’s and technocrats without balls. .
