Traffic measures for launch of DLP candidate for Roseau South

The traffic department of the Dominica Police Force will be implementing some temporary measures in the community of Newtown to ease traffic congestion during the launch of Dominica Labour Party (DLP) candidate for Roseau south, Chekira Lockhart.

Lockhart will be launched on Sunday 2nd of June, 2019 at Newtown Savannah. 

Acting Superintendent in charge of the Central Division, Leana Edwards explained the traffic arrangements which will be put in place.

 “One-way traffic will only be permitted on Victoria Street for motorist travelling north between the intersection of High Street and Victoria Street, Newtown and the Melville Battery road. Motorists travelling south to Newtown and other southern communities will do so via the Morne Bruce road and travel in an easterly direction unto the lower Morne Bruce road,” she said.

“Upon reaching the intersection of lower Morne Bruce road and Centre Street, Kings Hill you will continue in a southerly direction unto Back Street, Kings Hill then travel in a westerly direction along Melville Battery road unto the Newtown public road. Motorists traveling south along bath road will be diverted to the Morne Bruce main road to exit at Back Street Kings Hill unto the Newtown public road.”

Edwards also stated that motorists will not be allowed to travel in a westerly direction on Lower Kings Hill center street unto bathe road as well as motorist travelling south along Victoria street in the vicinity of DBS radio will be diverted left unto high street unto Morne Bruce public road.

Superintendent Edwards added that two emergency lanes have been established and must not be obstructed to the free flow of traffic.

“The portion of road on bath road between the intersection of High Street and Victoria street and Cornwall Street between the intersection of High Street and Bath Road, the portion of road on Cornwall Street between the intersection of High Street and Cornwall Street and the intersection of Cornwall Street and Bath Road, shall be maintained as an emergency lane. Only local access will be permitted on this portion of road.”

She said there will be no parking on either side of Victoria Street from the intersection of High Street and Melville Battery road as well as no parking on either side of Bath Road from the intersection of Independence Street and Morne Bruce public road. Public parking will be allowed in the city of Roseau and motorists must adhere to all traffic signs and road markings.

The general public is advised to fully cooperate with the police and to adhere to all the traffic signs and directions of the police.  

These temporary measures are scheduled to take effect from 9 am on Sunday 2nd June 2019 and will remain in effect until the area is clear of all obstructions by 11 pm on Sunday June 2nd 2019.

    IBO.We gave UWP a chance in 1995,what did they do?They sold Domlec for peanuts.Now Domlec is making $ 12,000,000 in profits every year.They closed the Layou 5 Star Hotel in 1977.That cost the people of St.Joseph,Layou,Mero and Tareau hundreds of jobs.They placed a Hospital User Fee at $ 5 then moved it to $ 20.More people died under UWP 4 years in office than any other Party.They destroyed the Police Force and put their PUPPETS in office.We lost an International Airport because of Edisson.The Airport was a gift for Paramilitary men like NICHOLAS GEORGE going to GRENADA.We will never vote UWP.A bunch of educated people being Led by aneducated JACK-A

      Your accusations are intended to stop the Blue Tidal Wave momentum but it is unstoppable. These are fresh people with fresh ideas to save the country from economic paralysis. You are driving and looking in the rear mirror. You bound to collide. Any thoughtful and caring PM will want the citizens to stand on both feet and earn for themselves. Not to give them handouts and reduce them to beggary. Shameful. How can you support mendicancy, vagrancy, Lincoln, be honest, there are too many able bodied young and middle aged adults begging and wasting their lives away because the economy is in the ICU at PMH for over a decade. Stop supporting nothingness.

    Free money, Free Rum, Free Beer, Free Bus, Free Gas, Free Entertainment so I going to the FREE party. The only thing that will soon not be free, is the leader and that’s what this campaign and vote buying is all about. As for the candidate Chekirat Lockhart, she does not have a good reputation and all that spending means nothing. I still RED but I cannot see myself voting for Skerrit again, no matter who going up. Before this year we were voting for Skerrit and not candidate but since he knows how messed up he is he now wants us to vote candidate? Hell no Chekirat! I voting for change this time because another 5 yrs of Roosevelt Skerrit would represent another five years of his devastation. He already killed our banana industry, killed Coconut industry, killed Bello, killed public works, caused Ross to leave, caused over 5000 people to be unemployed, he sending all our jobs to Barbados, destroyed so many families; So what is left to be destroyed the next 5 yrs? I guess our girls?

    June 1, 2019

    I just hope Mr Skerrit doesn’t wait until he is almost done giving his boring, mapwee, Lenton, Lennox Linton, empty, visionless speech to ask for the bell and say he feels like calling it. Skerrit go with the bell in your pocket and CALL IT! We the people are eager to hear the bell so we could be free to show our faces and cast our ballots of change As for me, I am not like inspector Mills that can show his color and call all talkshow. But I want you to know I am a vote you had in 2014, that cannot wait to vote you out next election? By the way there are many of us I Know that voted for you last election, from Roseau South that waiting for the bell to ring so we could help you find your way to answer your phone in NY, where Lap Seng is

    June 1, 2019

    Chekira Lockhart. The first four letters in both her first and last name says it all. CHEK. is pronounced Cheque and LOCK , so her prophetic name means the Cheque is locked

      A ‘lock’ cheque is a good cheque and you can take it to the bank. As compared to a bounced cheque which is useless trash.
      So thanks for the heads up. My girl is a sure winner.

    Except for Melissa Skerrit that is running because as the legal wife of Roosevelt, for the time being, she wants to protect him. All the other women going up on a ticket with Roosevelt in the day and age is doing so because they were paid a lot of money to run and we know, some women love money and SOME will do anything for money. Some just cannot resist money

      The irresistible urge that posses the UWP to grab CBI money is making them extremely disparate . It is not only women who love money . They men of the UWP gang bangers love money even more. That is why they are so BARZUDEE. Its like they have an addiction. So stop disparaging our ladies. Show some gender respect to our fine Dominican ladies.

      • Baby Sarah Crying
        June 2, 2019

        @ Joseph John, you know very well I did not disrespect our fine Dominican women. I specifically stated that it was those running for Skerrit. Read my post again you misleading Joseph John.

        UWP and CBI money. Is there any left? Ask your master to show us the accounts for the CBI program before you come on here and talk your usual BS. And while he is at it ask him about the missing Venezuelan millions.

      Do you know how insulting you are with such comment regarding your generalization of women.Who gave you the authority to judge people. When you sit behind your computer and make judgements about people of another gender it only shows the type of person you are and your mentality.

  7. Love of money
    June 1, 2019

    I am not high on any woman that running on a ticket of Roosevelt Skerrit in 2019. Quite clearly such person is motivated by anything, except love for country

    • Joseph John
      June 1, 2019

      And I guess Sean Douglas is not motivated by revenge. And when Lennox went on CNN in 2017 disparaging Dominica he was not motivated by the CBI money he could not get, but by love of country. And when he and his gang turn their backs on Dominicans after Maria he was motivated by love of country.
      But you think that any woman/lady who accept to be a political candidate is undeserving . That is so judgmental. The “men” in judgmental are those in the UWP with all their fake accusations and outright lies.

      • Love Money
        June 2, 2019

        @ Joseph John, to the best of my knowledge Lennox Linton was never on CNN in 2017. However, as a patriotic law abiding citizen, I believe Lennox Linton did the right thing when he reported the crimes he knows about to CBS 60 minutes. After all Joseph John, how could you be a real human being and see so many crimes and don’t report it? Unfortunately we cannot report those crimes to our local police because inspector Mills is always on the radio defending those known crimes. Regarding Sean Douglas, if he wanted to he would still be part of the cabal but instead, he chose to put Dominica first and as a result, he joined with those that want to deliver Dominica from the mess of Skerrit and the DLP

    Since his February announcement of 13 new candidates, Skerrit has only launched 2 candidates and will launch the 3rd one on Sunday. Interestingly all three are women. Does that ring a bell? If he continues at that pace we looking at March 2020 for him to launch all 13 candidates. Clearly he is on a delay tactic which could mean a few things: 1. He is afraid of ringing the bell because defeat is steering him in the face. 2 He hoping for a hurricane bailout to see if it will not prolong his stay a little. 3. He is trying to stir civil unrest to see if he can’t buy time 4. Maybe he is unable to deliver on his promises to his candidates and therefore they can’t commit yet 5. Melissa does not trust him enough 6. The ” Me too” movement maybe is of concern 7. He knows the day he is not PM his future in a dark room πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜‚ will begin 8. He feels all his friends will turn on him, if Tony hasn’t in secret. 9. Gucci will be gone 10. Then I think of John Ashe, Judas Iscarriot , King Saul etc

    Melville Battery is being mistaken for the Backstreet Road. Melville Battery road intersects with backstreet right before the decline that takes you to Newtown.

    Melville Battery doesn’t intersect with Newtown.

    Poor directions.

      Again, square pecks in round holes. All one sees in DA are politically motivated promotions.

    All Skerrit is doing is give people the impression that election is close but with my knowledge of him, elections will not be before December, if any elections. Make no mistake about it, Roosevelt is scared, scared, scared of the outcome and he knows very well that to him, losing means he will no longer be a FREE-DOM-ITE. So he going all over buying votes but he knows he cannot win in any of the four Roseau’s, he losing in the East from Wesley all the way to Laplaine. Then he knows he can’s win in Salsbury, St. Joe is gone, and so to is Mahault. He himself is in a fight of his life in the V/Case constituency and right now it is too close to call, while Reggie is poopooying on him in Cottage. So tell me if you think he can call election. In fact had it not been for the deep pockets of money he has his rallies would be empty. But people are paid to attend, free transportation, bus drivers getting free gas and pocket change so why not go? I hope he holds remembers to hold the bell

    We already know Skerrit cannot win and therefore Francine will not have competition for her “Foreign Affairs” services. But will Skerrit have a separate launch for each of these female candidates. Melissa will not be happy because she doesn’t like the idea of washing people’s dirty dishes you know.

    All I will say is, I don’t understand why women in particular, are running on a ticket for Roosevelt Skerrit. I know they are female but do they have daughters or granddaughters? I don’t even ask if they have nieces or cusins. My God we talking a man that eating all kids of catwhether is wild cat or home cat. Whether is cat from abroad or 🐈cat on the road. Why they trying to bring more 🐈 in the cabinet? Francine might not like that you Know I know Gucci is mad already

      This woman is not a nice person so don’t worry about her. What people do before they run always hunt them. Find out what she has done to others before running. Ask people about her.

    These novice candidates (neophytes) of the DLP are in the penny and in for the pound. They are completely disconnected from the people’s pain, sorrow and suffering. How do I know this? The last nineteen years of DLP rule is concrete evidence, living proof. Anyone who associates himself/herself with Skerrit and his do-nothing party becomes tainted goods and is then discarded by the wayside. You sleep with dogs, you are bound to catch their fleas.

      Novices ? So this bunch of ex-patriots, unpatriotic goons who are always M.I.A. are experts in everything. I am only going to ask you about all-you leader. What are his qualifications, special talents, skills, competences? What is his tract record, experiences and positive interventions? How has he contributed to any community activities ?
      Name one thing he has done re Maria ( during a time of our most severe crisis as a leader). Not only that, this zarman is such an arrogant know it all that he never took time to learn anything political. He does not even know what a “point of order” means, does not know that a diplomatic passport is not an invitation to insert himself into a Heads of Government Conference. He does not know that his misbehavior could be called a terrorist act and he can be declared persona non grata and banned from CARIFITA member states. Instead he gained the redicule of all the whole Carlbbean. You hear laughter ….ha ha ha ha HA HA. Novice indeed !

        You truly sound confused. Skerrit has all the experience. Experience in corruption, experience in begging, experience in victimization, experience in destruction: agriculture, economy, public service, agro industries, national security, etc. The man has rare expertise in lying, self-aggrandizement, money hoarding, making false promises. The man has reduced Dominica to a colossal embarrassment and the people to insufferable poverty. This long suffering has to end. A vote for Skerrit and the floundering DLP, is a vote for five (5) more years of unbearable hunger and HARD LABOUR. Dend them (DLP) through the EXIT DOOR.

      Another lamb that is being led to the slaughter. These probationers see politics as an easy avenue to enrich themselves. Mr. Skerrit has a record of completely manipulating the DLP, the Cabinet of Ministers, the Police Force, the Court and everything else. When was the last time the DLP held internal elections for leadership positions? The constituents from the various constituencies were not given their constitutional right to select their choice of candidates for the upcoming general election as stipulated in the DLP constitution. Skerrit handpicked them all by himself. No ethical, scrupulous nor decent minded person would associate himself/herself with this man.

      • Joseph John

        “Lamb to the slaughter,” you say. The only one who is leading his followers to slaughter is the Parliamentary Opposition Leader, Hon Lennox Linton. He has no supporters only followers. He is the pipe piper and a Judas goat all rolled into one. He is the only one urging his sheep to defy armed policemen with the words “the police cannot tell us what to do. Let them shoot us”
        Is he looking for human sacrifice like Timothy on May 29, 1979 ?

      On the other hand you may have reasons for calling her that so I plead the 5th according to the Americans. I wish her well because I know that the beating she is about to receive from the Hon. Francis will be one of the worst in Dca’s political history. No amount of money distributed in Roseau South can buy or fool the people. Believe me Kid, Josiah will have the last laugh because regardless of what he does and says in public he and close associates will NOT be voting for DLP/ Shekira.
