Government will be installing 20 street lamps in Cap Estate, Gros Islet to improve the safety and security conditions for residents.
Parliament Representative for the area, Emma Hippolyte, said she toured three areas of Cap Estate with personnel from the Ministry of Infrastructure and LUCELEC on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013.
“It was agreed that four street lamps at Becune Point, eight lamps at Saline Point and eight lamps at Flamboyant Drive be installed,” Hippolyte said in a Facebook announcement, while thanking residents of Cap Estate for their patience and the ministry and LUCELEC for their cooperation in the exercise.
The minister noted that “many more” street lamps are required in Cap Estate, other areas of Gros Islet and around the island. She assured residents that government is working to resolve these lighting conditions.
She added that this just one of the activities she is working on to improve the safety and security of her constituency, despite the limited financial resources.
“As I write, councillors from the Gros Islet Town Council are conducting a tour to prioritise projects to be implemented in the constituency. We are all aware of the limited resources so I urge you to be patient and know that your parliamentary representative is always working to ameliorate the conditions in Gros Islet,” Hippolyte said.
