Government Says It Had No Choice But To Undertake Corporate Area Road Projects All At Once
by Donique Weston
The government says it had no choice, but to undertake several road projects across the corporate area all at once.
There have been complaints from the public about the inconvenience, gridlock and delays caused by major works on roads, including Constant Spring, Hagley Park, Mandela Highway and the Three Miles area among others.
Route changes have been effected as the works progress.
People have questioned why so many major projects are being done at the same time.
Minister with responsibility for Infrastructure, Daryl Vaz, explains that the government was forced to carry out the road projects now, because of the timelines associated with the funding for the projects, under the Major Infrastructure Development Programme (MID-P). He says the government had to use or lose the loan funding from China EXIM Bank for works to be done by China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC).
