Wednesday 20th March 2013 marked a significant day for the people of Antilles Trace in the constituency of Oropouche West when their Member of Parliament for Oropouche West and Minister of State in the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, the Hon Stacy Roopnarine, together with the Minister of Works and Infrastructure officially commissioned Antilles Trace in San Francique. According to residents this road had never been paved before and they were quite pleased that the job was finally done.
Minister Roopnarine, in her address to the audience advised that Antilles Trace was a major connector Road from San Francique into Woodland, and therefore would ease traffic along the Main Road. She hoped that the residents in Antilles Trace, San Francique and Woodland would benefit from this, as well as those commuters who would use this route on a daily basis. She went on to thank the residents for their patience, as they indeed waited a long time to have their road paved.
Minister Roopnarine was thanked by the residents, not only for the road being paved, but also for the water project that was completed prior to road paving where 13 houses benefitted from water lines for the very first time. They were also thankful for the lights which were installed at the Antilles Recreation Ground in 2010 as well as the jogging track and other work done on their grounds.
Minister George in his address to the crowd advised that there were upcoming projects by the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure across all constituencies, as the Ministry continues to work on improving the road infrastructure.
