A problem that has been affecting bus drivers plying the Marigot to Londonderry route will soon be solved.
Public Works Minister, Ian Pinard, has said his ministry plans to construct wave breakers behind the seawall in the area to prevent sea water from invading the road.
The ministry should receive the final estimate later this week to determine the actual cost of the project, according to Pinard.
“We are waiting for the company we sent to Marigot to do the estimates for us, they have done all the necessary groundwork,” he said. “They have gone on the seaside, the Atlantic side, made the necessary measurements of the coastal area.”
The project is said to be an expensive one and according to Pinard, “We want to make sure that we do everything properly and do it the right way.”
Last month, bus drivers and others who use that route staged protest action near the Douglas- Charles Airport because the sea has breached the wall in the area causing seawater to invade the road.
They said for years the seawater has been damaging their vehicles and were demanding that the government do something about the situation.
