Restoring Roads in Tabaquite

Road1The Constituency of Tabaquite has some of the poorest quality roads and drains in Trinidad and Tobago. In fact, during the campaign of 2010, it became obvious to the MP that the ability to be re-elected would depend on the extent to which the roads would be restored. It is with this in mind that the assistance of the then Minister of Works Jack Warner, was sought in order to do massive repairs abut generally reconstruction.

Some of the areas most in need were Tortuga, Guaracarite, Housa trace, Lightbourne, Macaulay, Fores Park, Caratal 1, Caratal 2, Esmeralda, Mappipire, Cotton Hill off Bonne Aventure, St John’s Road and Pascall Road (both off Brothers Road), St Fabien Road, Corosal and Mamoral. The situation was compounded by the number of landslips as well as shifting soils which created engineering challenges as well as led to several homes being collapsing as a result the land movement.

It took from June 2010 to July 2012 to begin to see the results of the extensive work carried out. In the Caratal area, resident Ricky Parasan and his family who have lived there all their lives indicated that it was the first time in over forty years that the road was reconstructed. In Macaulay, Claxton Bay, residents noted that after thirty years they were treated to a first class road and drainage. In addition to these roads, the Ministry of Local Government and the Couva Tabaquite Talparo Regional Corporation have been paving a number of local roads and traces.
