On Tuesday 5th February 2018, the MP for Fyzabad, Dr. Lackram P Bodoe, was able to secure donations through local contractors to repair the Oropouche main road after it was littered with massive potholes throughout the entire roadway. These potholes were causing unnecessary traffic during the day as cars had to come to a near stop before driving over the potholes. In other areas the roadway had been turned into a one way as the size of some of the potholes were too big for vehicles to drive over without causing damage to vehicles. The road patching exercise began around 10 AM and saw approximately 9 distinct damages to the roadway being repaired. The MP wishes to thank businessman Mr. Deolal Rajkumar for his generous donations to the community in making this road repair possible.
It is also important to note that several complaints and requests were sent to the Ministry of Works and Transport and the Ministry of Public Utilities, pleading for the repairs as several motorists’ vehicles were damaged as a result of these pot holes. The damages varied from damaged rims and tyres to suspension damages, all of which had to be repaired by the residents themselves. The MP is pleading with the relevant authorities to repair the remainder of the roadway as it is in dire need of repair as there is only so much the residents can do for themselves.
