The over 300 residents of Rodney Road, Freeport will soon breathe a sigh of relief as the reconstruction works of the Bridge draws to a close. The project included the construction of a modern bridge, re surfacing the road and construction of pavements. This project was made possible only through the diligent efforts of the MP for Caroni Central Dr. Glenn Ramadharsingh after listening to the plights of his constituents.
The previous bridge was constructed in 1935 and in dire need of repairs, as flooding during the rainy season usually left the residents stranded in their homes unable to proceed to the main thoroughfares. Requests made to previous administrations were to no avail. Dr. Ramadharsingh ably assisted by Councillor for the area Mr. Anil Baliram worked tirelessly to have the project sanctioned and rehab works commenced. It is indeed acts like these that has endeared Dr. Ramadharsingh to his constituents and makes the rest of the country wish they had as passionate an MP.
