A new draft road policy which will contain recommendations for road maintenance matters will come up soon at Cabinet according to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit.
In his address at the ground breaking ceremony for the Roseau to Portsmouth Road Rehabilitation Project this morning, Skerrit said that the draft policy is intended to aid in better road maintenance efficiency.
“The use and durability of our improved road network will be determined by the importance that all of us – government and road users alike, attach to road maintenance. In that regard, the cabinet in a not too distant future will pronounce on a draft road policy that has been prepared. The policy should contain recommendations on the key issues of maintenance and or it’s financing,” the prime minister said.
He stated that more details would be disclosed about this policy in the future.
Today, work commenced on a $100 million road rehabilitation project to benefit Roseau to Portsmouth. This was funded by the People’s Republic of China.
