Neglect & danger on Virgin Gorda Roads?

NORTH SOUND, Virgin Gorda, VI- A photo of a road that has been washed out, according to many residents, since the May 2017 rains, is now circulating on social media.

The road is located in North Sound on the sister island of Virgin Gorda, across from Gorda Peak. It is clear that the road is eroded and could be a safety hazard.

However, Minister for Communications and Works Hon Mark H. Vanterpool (R4) responded to the FaceBook post by promising that his Ministry is “aware of this and have already dispatched a team form the Public Works Department to the site.”

Our Correspondence on Virgin Gorda just checked the area before publication time and the situation is the same. In fact calls were made to the reporter about other situations where roads have been washed away by heavy rain falls on Virgin Gorda within the past few months, including the road to North Sound past Nail Bay, but no attention has been paid to repairing them.

      @vG, no he all brag about the hundreds of millions spent on infrastructure, but look at the condition of the roads. O'Neal was only used to ensure the NDP get that seat but they have no respect for the poppy show. Will all that's going on, we the people are to be blame, we had no right putting back that NDP clan in office. It's not like we didn't know what they were up to, but little bit of dollars blind folded us

    These road cones are becoming permanent fixtures on our roads in VG....Road side drains dug out by the heavy rains waist deep and PWD workers are no where to be seen. There is a huge rock on the main road to Leverick Bay which is a popular tourist area and no one is checking on these things.
