Water-filled potholes are a danger to motorists, warns Traffic officer – in particular on Wireless Road and Friars Hill Road


Senior Sergeant of Police Kenny McBurnie of the Traffic Department is asking motorists to be extra careful with water-filled potholes, since they could be in for a rude and costly surprise.

McBurnie makes specific reference to the degradation of the Wireless Road, which has presented such challenges for years and been repaired on numerous occasions.

He says something needs to be done to prevent the potholes from forming in the same locations and creating a dangerous situation for drivers, especially when they are filled with water.

McBurnie notes that this is a problem occurring in other areas of the country. For instance, he says the recently constructed Friars Hill Road is beginning to create a problem that could result in the formation of potholes and cause accidents.

When it rains, he notes, it takes a while for the water to run off into the metal drains at the sides of the roadway. REAL NEWS

  1. The newly built road at Friar’s Hill Road is pot holing badly from Village Walk to Gambles Medical Centre and is cracking up and separating going up the hill and again by North Shore end. Seems this road is poorly constructed. Not sure how long it will last at the rate it is pot holing and cracking up. Even when the road money is donated by the British government, the Antigua government still cannot have a proper and lasting road constructed.

  2. This government just can’t get nothing right. And you know if them can’t deliver in the election season, crapo smoke ah we pipe after the elections. They got to go! Vote them out. They fail the people big time.

  3. Everybody building roads know that they have to built higher in the centre and lower at the sides for the water to run off. They don’t have any road engineers in public works? It is a disgrace that Friars Hill Road has these problems for a newly constructed road. Where has all the money gone?

  4. Didn’t the fired guy from Barbados say that all the money obtained was not being spent on the roads? What do you expect from this government?
