The Roads, Buildings and General Services Authority (BRAGSA) is currently spearheading road repair works in several communities across this island.
The road repairs programme is being funded to the tune of 13.7 million dollars, of which 8.3 million dollars is from Central Government and 5.4 million dollars from the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan).
Addressing a news conference this morning at BRAGSA’s Conference Room, Minister of Transport, Works, Urban Development and Local Government, Julian Francis said road patching works are currently ongoing in areas such as Roseau, Villa Fountain Road, Edinboro, Belair and Brighton.
Minister Francis said two asphalt repair teams from BRAGSA and 13 from the private sector are carrying out the road patching works presently.
Minister Francis road said road works are also being carried out in Marriaqua and Biabou as well as in South Leeward and North Leeward.
The Minister of Transport and Works said the road repair works are expected to run until about November this year, and he is urging community members to put pressure on the contractors to ensure that the road works are done properly.
