The people of Castle Bruce will soon see an eradication of pit latrines in their community since the government has made available $200,000 towards that initiative.
This was revealed by Parliamentary Representative of the Castle Bruce constituency, Johnson Drigo, during his address at the 17th inaugural meeting of the Castle Bruce Village Council on Wednesday.
According to Drigo, Dipax, a section of Castle Bruce, will benefit from the project.
“As we speak the Prime Minister has committed $200,000 for Castle Bruce and Dipax for the continuation of bathroom facilities and these funds will go to the Castle Bruce Village Council for implementation,” he said. “Castle Bruce got seven toilet facilities, but we ensure that four were done apart from the seven in Dipax because we are not leaving Dipax out. Dipax is an integral part of Castle Bruce. Anything we get for Castle Bruce is for Castle Bruce and Dipax.”
He further mentioned that the government has already spent $450,000 towards renovating the Jalousie road in the community.
“I told you the Jalousie road will be dug but just bear with Parl Rep Johno, let him get some major projects off the way in the San Sauveur area,” he said.
Drigo promised that the last phase of the road will soon be completed.
“There is a last phase, which is from the junction to the main road in Wakama,” he sated. “We will do that but for now, my dear people of Jalousie, strong supporters of Johnson Drigo, you have an excellent road to drive on. Don’t let anyone tell you nothing is being done for you because this is being done for your comfort and safety.”
