Minister of Works and Infrastructure, Dr. Surujrattan Rambachan hosted an official opening of Bridge 1/12 Eastern Main Road in St Joseph today around 11AM.
The St Joseph bridge project was executed under the Bridges Reconstruction Programme of the Bridges, Landslips and Traffic Management Unit.
In 2013, BLT conducted a condition survey which revealed that the bridge’s steel components and connections were heavily corroded.
However the sitting Member of Parliament for St. Joseph, Terrance Deyalsingh and also The People’s National Movement candidate for St. Joseph claims he was not invited to the ceremonial event.
Deyalsingh said this action by the Works & Infrastructure Minister is another political ploy of the People’s Partnership Government.
Deyalsingh went on to add that this move was gutter politics and hopes the electorate takes note of the actions by the United National Congress and by extension the People’s Partnership Government.
