Farmer’s constant lament of the deplorable road conditions leading to their farms may soon come to an end.
Acting prime minister and minister of public works, Rayburn Blackmoore, has said movements are being made to rehabilitate feeder roads all across Dominica.
Blackmoore told the inauguration of the Marigot Village Council on Monday evening that the government has spent some $2.7-million on rehabilitating feeder roads, which he said was an interim measure to bring relief to farmers.
However, he said there will be a ‘comprehensive approach’ to the issue under the Banana Accompanying Measure (BAM) funded by the European Union.
“We shall be addressing 72 kilometers of our feeder roads,” he said. “In fact the survey works are being done, including Marigot …. to bring relief to our farmers. We are talking about $42-million to be spent on feeder roads in this country.”
