Roads in the Salybia Constituency are to be upgraded as announced in the 2015/2016 National Budget.
On the itinerary for road improvements in the Constituency is the Horseback Ridge Road.
Hon. Parliamentary Representative for Salybia Constituency, Casius Darroux explained, “The Horseback Ridge Road is a major tourism route where we have strategic scenic viewpoints for persons to enjoy the true picture of the Kalinago Territory. Also, this is major farm access road. The people of the Bataca area will benefit significantly from the upgrade.
“Community roads in Bataca will be addressed,” he continued, “all inroads in the community will be attended to.”
He listed the Potopee Road on which work has begun, the Magwa, Samuel and Slaybia Roads as well the expansion of other farm access roads.
Funds to improve these roads will come from the $33m allocated to the Ministry of Public Works, focusing on infrastructure projects, including the entire road network in the east.
