Johnson blast Government on road network


Philipsburg – There are several roads throughout the various districts in need of repair and even complete resurfacing, while "this Government is having the most relaxed attitude ever towards the deplorable condition of some of the roads throughout the island," Stuart Johnson Democratic Party parliamentary candidate remarked. Johnson also holds the function of Vice President of the board of the Democratic Party

During the tenure of the Democratic Party Government we saw countless roads being paved maintained, which reinforced DP’s commitment of "improving the road network." Nowadays, we have come to the belief that the road network does not have the focus of the NA/Louie Laviest/Theo Heyliger Government.
Johnson said, "The state of the roads is something that should be tackled, especially in the outer areas/districts." He added, "Imagine the Walter J. Nisbeth road on Pondfill has been without lights for over one week, despite the ongoing complaints by residents in the area to various stakeholders involved." Our island continues to face countless robberies and other criminal acts, thus, making "safety a priority for our people" should be a major focus of this Government, but it clearly is not their focus. In addition to a road being adequately maintained or resurfaced, we should also see proper drainage and lighting in place as was done in the past. "It is evident with any road having sufficient lighting in place, helps to curb criminal acts being committed by offenders," Johnson said. "Thus, it’s unacceptable what is happening on Walter J. Nisbeth road as well as other roads throughout the various districts."

"Does government have a plan for road improvements?" Johnson questioned. He mentioned empathically, "It is imperative our road network must be able to meet the challenges which lay ahead for us terms of infrastructural improvements and economic growth," Johnson concluded.
