Road con­di­tions

Wet weather or not, Pub­lic Works De­part­ment (PWD) was bet­ter in fact when it comes to road patch­ing or grad­ing. Now con­trac­tors are worse than PWD, when it comes to up­grad­ing or patch­ing or re­turn job on the road they have just fixed one week ago. Lo­cals were do­ing a bet­ter job be­fore con­trac­tors were given the ten­der in the name of ex­pa­tri­ates. There are too many bosses roam­ing with the 4x4 in the road busi­ness and not much work done and some jobs have been pend­ing for years. New roads fixed turn into pot holes in a cou­ple of weeks of project and re­turn job again. A ques­tion to FRA is, are they sur­vey­ing or check­ing the qual­ity when road job is fin­ished or com­pleted by the con­trac­tors or every­thing is on pa­per and pay­checks are in­stantly ready.

The cap­i­tal in­vested in road for the bud­get put aside by the Govern­ment can make a new ce­ment road that can last for 20 or more years rather than you know what hap­pened. The case is too many bosses; too many pot holes.
