Photo credit: togetherwemust.comPublic Works Minister Rayburn Blackmoore says addition funding received from the Central Development Bank for the Valley Road Project is positive news for the people of Dominica and by extension the government.Last week government signed a loan agreement with the Caribbean Development Bank for over $4 million.Blackmoore told a press conference yesterday that 11.5 kilometers of road in the Roseau Valley area has been rehabilitated however “some major interventions” must be done. “We have to eliminate some of the risks associated with the traversing of that road. One of them has to do with the cliff within the intersection of the St Aroment and Bath Estate Road. We will be stabilizing that cliff and improving the road from Bath Estate going into Silver Lake,” he explained.According to Blackmoore the CBD has shown keen interest in the development of Dominica.He said statements about government accountability in relations to the projects undertaken should put to rest.He also highlighted the improvements made to the West Coast Road through the rehabilitation project.“We have been able to dispel all the myths about that road. We need to ask ourselves were it not for the visionary leadership of the prime minister, could we as a people mobilize over one hundred million US dollars to have this project?”He said the official closing ceremony for that project could be held between April 18 and 20th, 2012.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Share Share Sharelast_img
