Many people believe that the government should spend more money on improving roads. However, other people think that more money should be spent on improving public transportation. What are your views on this topic, with a new government in power should more roads be fixed in small communities around the island?
In my opinion governments should definitely spend more money on public transport over improving roads and highways. People would not only benefit for cheaper transport, and less pollution, but there will be less traffic accidents.
By all means, certainly build more roads. This is inevitable, otherwise you have to stop the importation of vehicles.
I have always thought: the country needs two transport hubs. One in Cul de sac, one in Choc. Build bus terminals at these locations, organize a ferry service every 30 mins from these locations to the city, and free Castries of this parking nightmare. The mini buses now take up all the parking space available in Castries. Place parking meters and earn some income from parking in the city.
More should be spent on improving roads. A lot of the infrastructure in the inner communities are in deplorable conditions, some of them for over 10 years. I’m sure there are persons who don’t know the roads to be any other way. These roads are so bad that buses refuse to go there. Walking these roads is even a hazard. The main roads and highways aren’t the only ones that need attention.
