A section of the roadway in Paraquita Bay has reverted to a state of disrepair; mere days after the Ministry of Communications and Works underwent a road repair project in the area.
The damaged roadway is located a short distance from the H Lavity Stout Community College.
When BVI News visited the area this week, a portion the road was riddled with cracks and potholes.
A pool of green, murky water was also seen settled at the side of the road.
While at the site, motorists were noticeably manoeuvring their vehicles off the roadway in an attempt to avoid the potholes burrowed on the recently paved thoroughfare.
The Works Ministry completed the road project earlier this month.
The cost of the recently completed road project is not known. But, BVI News understands that government is using a portion of the Caribbean Development Bank’s $65 million loan to carry out the project, which is ongoing in other sections of Tortola.
Works Minister Mark Vanterpool recently described the projects as a ‘relatively temporary’ fix.
He said government plans to do a ‘complete design’ of the territory’s roads in coming months.
