(PRESS RELEASE) – The United Workers Party welcomes the largest single investment in Road Rehabilitation Project as announced by Prime Minister Hon. Allen Chastanet and Minister for Infrastructure Hon. Stephenson King in September of this year.

The UWP is especially happy to note that in keeping with our manifesto promise on page 18, neglected roads across most constituencies in Saint Lucia will benefit from much needed rehabilitation interventions with the US $42 Million Programme. This major Road rehabilitation project is made possible due to the vision of our Political Leader and Prime Minister, in implementing the tax on fuel to facilitate Road rehabilitation in Saint Lucia.

Work has already commenced on the Cas En Bas road in Gros Islet, the Forestierre road, the Ti Morne road in Babonneau, Saltibus road in Choiseul and the recent commencement of the Belair road in Castries South East.

The party notes that in the coming days, major road rehabilitation work will commence in Dennery Village, Blanchard and Spring road in Micoud South and the New Development roads in Soufriere as announced by the Minster.

Upon completion of this extensive road rehabilitation project, over 82km of roads across the island would have been upgraded creating the largest road infrastructure upgrading project carried out in Saint Lucia since independence.

The UWP and its supporters again encourage the Prime Minister and his cabinet of Ministers to remain focused as they continue to expand and improve the infrastructure around the Island amidst the desperation and the propaganda being spread by the Opposition as a form of distraction in our quest of Building a New Saint Lucia.

  1. The constituencies target so far are those proving to be questionable for the UWP to regain in thew next election. The general public sentiment seems to show a disapproval in those representatives whose constituencies are receiving the first round of project benefits.

    Another aspect is the huge sum of the overall project and the Ministry under which it is being carried out. Though Stephenson King has stepped forward, the portfolio still falls under Guy Joseph and his handling of contract awards has remained questionable.

    They've been patching and fixing the same holes over and over and over, who is getting that money, will this project be different?

    Does anyone else smell something foul in all of this....?

    Don't care for Party Politics, my colour is that of the Lucian Flag...before it is said otherwise.
