Minister of Transport and Works Julian Francis said on Tuesday, March 18 that a $1.35 million road patching programme was taking place in various parts of St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Some areas that have already benefitted from this programme include parts of the Leeward highway, in and around Kingstown, the Belair bypass, Ottley Hall Marina road, Spring Village cross drain at Hermitage, Frenches, Town Hill, Dorsetshire Hill up to the school gap, the Gomea road and the Largo Heights road.

Francis, who acknowledged that persons often refer to the potholes as “craters”, noted that the Roads, Buildings and General Services (BRAGSA) are doing the best that they can.

“We cannot do all one time,” the Minister said. “There are some potholes on the Windward highway. We want to patch them up. We don’t want them to get any worse.”
