Disaster waiting to happen
Today’s accident on the recently opened section along Mosquito Creek, a section opened without any shoulder and what must be considered narrow lanes is an appropriate example of the carelessness of this Government in treating with the lives and safety of citizens.
As former Minister of Works and Infrastructure, when this section of the Highway was opened, I cautioned the Minister of Works that what he had opened was a dangerous threat to the safety of users of that section of the Highway. Prior to today’s accident, there have been small accidents including vehicles that have hit the railing. In their haste to prove that they are efficient, the Government has compromised the safety of users with very dire consequences. The question is on whose hands does the blood stains now remain?
