According to Hon Julian Fraser RA (R3), residents and business owners will get to plan around other inconveniences such as the nuisance of dust, congestion, and access issues, by demanding that the road is sprayed with sufficient frequency to keep the dust in check, adequate access to their properties is maintained, and proceed to schedule their activities around the project's activities.

SEA COWS BAY, Tortola, VI- Working around the inconveniences brought about by the High Voltage Cable Laying project will be among the topic of discussion when Third District Representative Hon Julian Fraser RA meets with residents of Sea Cows Bay and other affected areas on Friday February 12, 2016.

The meeting will be held at the Valerie O. Thomas Community Center at 7:00pm and is mainly for residents and business owners of Sea Cows Bay, Cocodella, and Collon Hill, together with all motorists who frequent the Sea Cows Bay main road.

The High Voltage Cable Laying project will pass through Sea Cows Bay over the next few weeks.

Minister for Communications and Works Hon Mark H. Vanterpool, along with representatives from his Ministry; BVI Electricity Corporation; and the Contractors, is expected to be on hand for the presentation.

“It is my belief, that given the anticipated inconvenience to motorists by the significant narrowing of the road, and the resulting delays in traffic due to diversions and miscommunication, a forewarning, the sharing of ideas, and full knowledge of the diversion routes should be had prior to the start of the project. 

“Additionally, residents and business owners will get to plan around other inconveniences such as the nuisance of dust, congestion, and access issues, by demanding that the road is sprayed with sufficient frequency to keep the dust in check, adequate access to their properties is maintained, and proceed to schedule their activities around the project's activities,” Hon Fraser stated.

    Why do utilities have to be laid beneath the road and not in service channels along the road that can be dug up over and over again without costing a whole new road resurface everytime water, sewerage, telephone, electricity etc do maintenance

    Digging up is ok. If they have a plan that works. But obviously their plans are not working. They have dug up in front of the custums building the same spot 3 times. Where is our government? The roads are been dug up to regular.
