“We are applying a technology which is asphaltic concrete 2 inches thick that will be going through the lower Morne Bruce road and Center Street”
He stated that once the project is completed and the government is satisfied with the results, more projects like this are expected.
Meantime, prospective candidate for the Dominica Labour Party for the Roseau South Constituency Chekira Hypolite says she is optimistic the project will impact positively on residents’ lives.
“The conditions it was terrible a lot of portholes, vehicles had to sway or stop to allow other vehicles to pass and the residents complained a lot about the road. As a frequent visitor to this area, I know that this road project will impact the lives of the residents of the Kingshill area.”
The residents of Center Street, Backstreet, Morne Bruce and Nine Houses are the among those benefiting from the roadworks.
