Officials working on solution to terrible Mount Joy road


The condition of a road in Mount Joy which has angered residents and motorists is to receive attention, the government has announced.

Member of Parliament for All Saints West Constituency, Michael Browne, has brought to the Cabinet’s attention a vexatious issue involving a supplier of sand and aggregates operating from the Mount Joy community.

He reportedly said that as a result of large trucks carrying heavy loads, the surface of the roads leading to and from the homes in the Mount Joy area have been severely impacted and destroyed.

Mud, water and deep indentations from truck tires, following heavy rainfall, now replace the smooth surface, making the roads impassable to residents and their automobiles.

Videos and photos of the road have been posted online and circulated widely.

The Cabinet says it has asked the Minister of Public Works to develop a rehabilitation plan and to solve the problem of the trucks which disturb residents late and night until early in the morning.

The Development Control Authority is also to work with the PWD to bring a permanent solution to this challenge.

  1. I’m trying to figure why such a business is in a residential area? When are we going to take the DCA to yak for granting businesses permission to build in a residential area?
