MIDH Repairs Road Leading to Trio Village in Toledo
At the beginning of this week, teachers and hundreds of students of Trio Village, Toledo were unable to get to school because of the deplorable roads that prevented the buses from being able to enter the village, but that issue has been resolved. Consistent heavy rainfall coupled with the large trucks that travel on the road daily took a toll on its integrity causing large potholes to form. The village lies about eight miles off the Southern Highway, which is a long stretch for villagers to travel on foot. Chief Engineer in the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing, Lennox Bradley, says that by today the villagers were able to travel in and out of the village with ease.
Minister of Education Francis Fonseca also weighed in on the issue and says that he is expecting the students from both villages to return to the classroom by Tuesday. According to him, the problem is a result of years of neglect by the previous administration in remote areas of the country.
