MPW continues to rehabilitate roads

12th November, 2013

KINGSTOWN – The Ministry of Public Works continues to push out its mandate by paving roadways for the safe usage of motorists and pedestrians.

Against this backdrop, thoroughfares in and around Georgetown continue to be transformed. In fact, 3,000 feet of Princess Street between Louisa Row and Lombard Street was recently paved.

According to Lawrence Mentis, an Engineer attached to the Works Services Group (WSG) within the Ministry, the cost for the repairs stood at $9,522,000.

“We do these roads because they reduce maintenance of vehicles, increase level of service, reduce fuel consumption and increase productivity,” he added.

Over 20 roads have been earmarked to be rehabilitated.
