The Ministry of Works and Transport has completely abdicated their duty and in so doing have placed the lives of the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago at risk. Earlier today, a vehicle heading driving along the Naparima Mayaro road in Palmyra Village veered off course and fell into a precipice along the Naparima Mayaro road as a result of a landslip. Thankfully no one was severely injured and there were no fatalities as a result.
I have pleaded and continue to plead with the Ministry for assistance in rectifying this issue but to date my requests seems to have fallen on deaf ears. I am fearful for the lives of my burgesses and the motoring public at large who make use of this major carriageway on a daily basis.
It would appear as though my electoral district of Reform / Manahambre has been woefully neglected by central Government and my burgesses continue to be robbed of basic commodities such as proper roads, which they are entitled to. This is completely unacceptable and I call on the Minister of Works and Transport to intervene in this matter to prevent a possible fatality in the future.
