Highway Re-route Movement will not stop protesting construction of highway…


Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh

Activist Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh says the Highway Re-route Movement will not change its mind about preventing the Debe to Mon Desir leg of the Solomon Hochoy Highway from being constructed, even despite renewed appeals from the Prime Minister.

Dr. Kublalsingh in an interview said Mrs. Persad-Bissessar was clearly conflicted about whom to please in the ongoing controversy over the highway extension.

He said she had to choose between making the right decision based on scientific evidence or the promise of lucrative contracts for those with interest in the highway’s construction.

At the opening of the highway on Friday, the Prime Minister made the point that detractors should put away selfish desires.

She said most of the travelling public wanted the highway to continue.

However, Dr. Kublalsingh said he intended to continue his protest outside the Office of the Prime Minister during the week from 9.30 am to 4 pm.
