Strangely, when the roads are bad in the country, the Department of Traffic appears to be the government agency of choice for citizens to vent their frustration, especially when members of that division are hosting their regular radio programs.
Now according to Inspector Cromwell Henry, speaking on Monday 3rd 2012, plans are in the works to resurface and do repair work on the entire peninsula road and the area that is now closed off, it is intended that a tunnel be placed there and the entire road will be resurfaced. Those however, are the long term plans.
But he said that the Area on the highway deemed too dangerous for motorists, is expected to undergo refurbishment in the near future.
He said that for the short term, the road has to remain open because larger trucks cannot manoeuvre on the bypass road, due to its make up, but urged the general public to refrain from using the main road through the tunnel.
Henry indicated that using the bypass road makes it even more dangerous for the larger vehicles and for that reason they cannot close the main road.
He added that he is aware that it is also somewhat risky using the bypass road at night, but promised that he will work closely with the roads engineer at Public Works Department to see how best they could make it safer for motorists.
