    The bush has grown so high that it is almost impossible to see incoming vehicles. I don't understand why the PWD and Solid Waste Department is not used to cut the bushes and maintain the roads. I guess we have to wait until Election when NDP give out bush cutting contracts. Until then, motorists will just run into each other when driving on roads covered with over grown tree branches hanging over the roads, and making corners almost impossible to navigate. SMDH.

      What happened to the time we the people had enough pride and love for our country we didn't wait on the government to do everything. if you travel the road often get a group of people together and go and cut the bush it's for your own safety.

        @Just saying.... whilst some people may dislike your comment (and mine), that is so true. But nowadays people are looking for pay just to cut bushes instead of volunteering. They should bear in mine that it is for their own safety.

          I do agree with the comments but let's bear in mind a few things. Ours is a fractured community at best. Divided by wealth, race, party affiliation and Wherefroms. With that said we easily find no common ground to work together like days of old. Also whenever someone do something it is frowned or heap scorn upon. With that we all keep in our corner and speak of what was. Will those times ever return?

        What you said is commendable, but it is Government responsibility to maintain the roads for the safety of residents and visitors. Why leave maintenance until election time, and then give out bush cutting contracts? Maintenance should be ongoing, not once every four years.
