Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh

Members of the Highway Re-route Movement are planning to form a human barricades in front of bulldozers and other heavy equipment as they accelerate efforts to stop work on the Debe to Mon Desir leg of Point Fortin highway.

Tensions have been escalating at the disputed site over the past few days after reports that work is set to resume on the highway extension.

Over the weekend, HRM members converged on an Construtora OAS site office on the Mon Desir Road and threatened to form a human barricade in front of bulldozers if worker attempted to enter the disputed area. 

HRM leader Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh said the group will remain at the camp to ensure that no progress is made on the disputed segment.

Meantime, Housing Development Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal has warned that the group could be found in contempt of court if they continue their protests.
