We are just winding down the contract down at the Carib Reserve and then to come to finish the work.”The Minister is also commending the support that the Government is receiving from village councils around the island, in undertaking road projects in both urban and rural communities.He announced that several village councils including Calibishie will soon be spearheading road development projects, after Government approved funds which will soon be accessible to the respective village councils.

We just approved $150, 000.00 also for a road in the Woodfordhill/Wesley area and that we are hoping to work with the village councils. We have been empowering the village councils to get involved in cutlassing and cleaning of the drains and making the monies available to some of the councils we feel that have demonstrated over a period of time the ability to manage and to stretch the money. We have also done that with the village council in the Laplaine Constituency to empower them and to make money available to build roads,” Mr Blackmoore said.On commencement of the Morne Prosper road project, which started in November 2010, Morne Prosper residents are now using a private back road made accessible by the Alexander’s which intersects further up Copthall, since the main road is blocked.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!
