UDATE: Under pressure NDP moves to fix road in Third District

SEA COWS BAY, Tortola, VI- After hearing every excuse in the book from the Ministry of Communications and Works and Departments under the Ministry, Third District Representative Hon. Julian Fraser RA, spoke out in an exclusive interview with this news site about two bad patches on the main road in his district. The bad patches had become a traffic hazard since last year.

The day the article came out (February 7, 2013) was the same day the National Democratic Party (NDP) Administration of Dr. the Honourable D. Orlando Smith found the resources and time to partially fix the bad patches that existed for well over three months.

This has cemented what Hon. Fraser and many in the community have said for months; that the third district has been singled out for victimisation and neglect by the current Government.

In other words, many now see that without the pressure from the district representative via the article, many motorists would have continued to face the dangerous road condition on the stretch of road in the vicinity of Nanny Cay.

This is also another example where the At-Large system has failed because not one At-Large Member intervened to see if the situation could have been corrected even though many of them would have passed and seen the situation for many months.

Opposition Member and First District Representative Hon. Andrew A. Fahie has accused the NDP of taking from the rich to give to the poor. He said the government has done nothing since taking office in 2011 besides dishing out lucrative contracts and jobs for their friends, family and cronies while lying to the people that the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) government had left the country broke.

Recently, LGS and Associates, which is headed by Mrs Lorna Smith, wife of Premier Smith, racked up a $100,000 consultancy contract. The terms and conditions are unknown at this time.

Hon. Fraser absolutely convinced Third District singled out for neglect!

- Says no road maintenance being done in district substantiates allegation

Third District Representative Hon. Julian Fraser RA is convinced more than ever that the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) Government has singled out his district for abandonment and this he said can be substantiated by the fact that road rehabilitative work is being done in other districts while he has been pleading for similar work to do done in his.

“I have respect for the Government as it relates to what they are doing when it comes to maintaining the roads. What I don’t appreciate is when they tend to single out certain areas for abandonment,” Hon. Fraser told Virgin Islands News Online in an exclusive interview.

The district representative has been speaking out in public at every opportunity that presents itself and has been calling for Government to have the road issues in the Third District addressed. He was particularly concerned about a section of the road at Sea Cows Bay, in the vicinity in Nanny Cay, which was dug up by Water and Sewerage Department since last year and left unattended. “That road is not the only one that needs fixing but it is the main thoroughfare in getting to and from the West,” said Hon. Fraser.

Two weeks ago, Hon. Fraser said that he managed to get the Acting Director of Water and Sewerage Ms Perline Scatliffe-Leonard to visit the site to have the situation evaluated and on February 4, 2013 work commenced on one of the bad patches. “They started that piece of work and I would hope that they complete it very soon,” noting that he was pleased that Scatliffe-Leonard had given an assurance of fixing the problem.” Virgin Island’s News Online understands that one of the holes was compressed with sand but no further work has been done to date.

Hon. Fraser described the action of singling out his district for abandonment as sad. “When they do that they aren’t doing me anything it’s the people and it’s them who are going to suffer.” He added that it seems that not only his district but also some others have been singled out for abandonment and that kind of behavior is unacceptable. “I appreciate that this government, wherever they are fixing roads and maintaining them, but they need to do it to the whole Territory.”

Hon Fraser said that he has resigned to the fact that there will be no work done to his district by the existing Government. “I can live with that, its people’s interest, not me,” stated Hon Fraser. He recalled that during his tenure in Government as Minister there were loud cries that he was only doing works in his district but still insists that the road to his district is a very important one.

“Every ounce of garbage that is produced in this Territory has to travel along that road to get to the incinerator so…” said Hon. Fraser as he alluded to the significance of the road, which runs through the Third District, and that it should be of priority for maintenance by Government.

He alluded to another bad patch on the road not far off from Nanny Cay. He said water lodges in the hole and often causes vehicular traffic to be swerving away suddenly. “Heaven forbids that no serious accident has occurred there yet,” said Hon. Fraser.

Have you seen the state of Great mountain road for the past two or three years now..... Ballest bay road etc and he got the balls to talk bout neglect strupss try sit and wait in line like the rest districts had to do while you were minister of communication....Great mountain road should be the priority since tour buses travel through there daily and its a crying shame a two way road is somewhat a one way for sooo long. Great mountain road is a accident waiting to happen so please spear me the crap and drive around the island and see much more needed work than sea cows bay

        I am certainly not blind but i'm sure you are put politics aside and use common sense there are far worst roads in the BVI than sea cow's bay road like Great mountain road which i travel frequently, where tour buses with tourists travel, school buses and the lists goes on.. It is practically a one way i ain't no paid ndp blogger but a concerned citizen of this country. I ain't blaming no one for the state of great mountain road but all governments both vip and ndp but the reality is since that big rain in 2010 or 2011 the state of great mountain road was never fixed maybe you should come out your shell and set into reality. I have driven on sea cows bay road and can still say it is fine with a few minor touch ups that is need compared to the great moutain road which is worse ......Vino maybe you should take some reporters and visit great mountain road for people like 'Bias" to get some sense from talking crap.... P.S. Great mountain road was in disrepair wayyy before the manse road was considered for expansion and still is

    All over the Territory need road and other works not just the 3rd. For the last 2yrs the only road that was paved was in the 3rd District. This man smoking his lunch or what? The money he spend fencing off the illegal landfill and making concrete slabs would've gone a long way to fix a lot of things. I agree with him regarding digging up the road and leaving it. That is total nonsense and needs to stop. But otherwise he is just blowing hot air as usual. Give it a rest boss man, it too early to be campaigning.

    Let's get real. This is such unadulterated crap. Has anyone drove up to the college or East End lately? It's pot hole after pot hole and they have 2 freaking representatives in the House and one is a Minister. It's articles like this, stirring up some pot of nothingness that infuriates me no end. This morning on my round of errands I got to the Post Office. They had no a/c. A worker told me they haven't had it since July. Let's not even talk about how in 2013 the Post Office is still writing things in ledger rather than having an efficient computer sysstem. Last week there was an article about Survey not having water to flush toilets and they were using bottled water. Then there is the fact that the hospital has no hot water and I was present, so this isn't gossip, on a ward while a nurse was trying to give a bath to a very old woman and had to put cups of hot water from the cooler into the cold water so she could give the bath. Please could Honorable Frazer talk about real stuff like that. Please could you all write articles about things that are really affecting our lives. How about the fact that there is still after all these years no consumer protection for anyone, that people are signing contracts and not paying their bills. That you have to get lawyers and go to court to try to get the money you've worked for. Can we talk about the fact that employers are being penalized for the inability to pay social security and taxes and there is no plan in place to help employers who are suffering through the economic situation on top of the dead beats that inhabit the Virgin Islands. I understand that first and foremost Mr. Fraser is a politician and he wants to be re-elected so he's throwing anything out there. I'm hoping that there are enough intelligent people still living here and experiencing frustrating things in their lives every day that make the two pot holes in sea cows bay seem like nothing in their day, who will see this for exactly what it is. A lot of noise and no substance. We are a people that like to complain but we have no solutions and if we did we wouldn't want to do anything about it anyway, someone else is always responsible for everything. So let's stay real people there's a whole list of things that are wrong in this country but if all we want to do is read articles and no even in some cases, understand them, and comment with nonsense statements then look out please for those pot holes to become neck breaking craters.

      @Keeping it Real, lets be real. You seem to be someone who is troubled and therefore has difficulty separatin apples and oranges. What do you mean Employers having difficulty paying Employees Social Security and Income Tax? You seem unstable, this is nonsense. That Social Security money came from the employee salary, that income tax came from the employee's salary, so what's your point?

      Mr. Fraser has been talking about the real stuff you are quoting, such as matters at the hospital, the issue of water and the like, but you are allowing your frustration to cloud your judgment. You don't seem to believe that digging up the main thorofare and leaving it for over 6 months unrepaired, especially at a corner is not a problem worth airing, well that is too bad. Thank God for Representatives like Mr. Fraser who feels and act different.

      Your insults and disrespect for Representatives doing their job is rude and shameful. I think you need help with whatever you going thru.

    this particular pot hole is right next to the infamous million dollar retaining wall. For all we know, poor engineering and water run-off caused the flaking of the asphault because the water had no place else to go.

      @pat, you j@ck @$$, the holes were dug out by water and sewage. What's the problem, you can't read? May be that is why you miss the cost of the wall earlier.

        thank you for the clarification, Sicko. Indeed, the holes are in front of the retaining wall. Water and Sewage exercises poor engineering and follow through I guess. Thank you for your respectful words giving someone the benefit of the doubt when expressing an opinion. You are too kind. Indeed, many people on this board seem to follow suit in response. Be nicer!

    It remains my personal opinion; projects are only rushed to be completed when it have something to do with tourism. Why we the tax payers, residents & citizens of this place are treated like second-class to the tourism projects....simple point; when those cruise ship calls into road town we the people of this country can not get running water all the water goes to cruise ships(tell me how can that be right)....the “National Dose of Poison” aka (NDP) administration can not keep the roads in good repair but rushing to go build millions dollar projects. The citizens of these islands can not get proper health care yet we paving the way for more tourism ....our only hospital still “under the water” but “National Dose of Poison” (NDP)we can find millions to build cruise ship dock and runway expansion...i will continue to say, yes as a developing community we need the bigger sea & air ports but for heaven sake take care of the citizens first, adequate water supply, good road ways, update the health care system, see about our senior citizens and for the love of God please address the educational system, we are in 2013, simply take a visit to BVI High School, my goodness yet NDP running for the airport and sea port expansion( see where OUR CHILDREN call school each and every day( it is alright for OUR children the future of our country to be “under tents”(2013) but we making sure the tourist have a pleasant trip the BVI ...

    I hope whe they finally finish asphalting the patches, they will clean the wall they messed up. Do you see the condition of the wall next the holes?

    Those Water and Sewage workers took the Back-Hoe shoe and put it on the wall breaking off the ribs on the wall, then they came back and sprayed cement water on the face of the wall. Go take a look at it. It is a careless, willful act. Only in Sea Cows Bay.
