PRIME Minister Dr Keith Rowley tours a number of projects in east Trinidad on Monday.

A Office of the Prime Minister Facebook post stated that Dr Rowley spent Monday in East Trinidad touring various sites where he received an update on ongoing road repair and construction activity.

His first stop was at the Limestone Division of the National Quarries Company Limited in Blanchisseuse.

The post stated, “The company plays a vital role in providing foundational materials for the nation’s highways, access roads, and other asphalt surfaces.

“Discussions focused on increasing output at the facility as the Government accelerates its infrastructure development plan.

The Prime Minister also visited the Ministry of Works and Transport’s Agua Santa Asphalt Plant in Wallerfield where he witnessed first-hand the Ministry’s recycling initiative.

“The plant produces Bitumen Stabilised Material using Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) sourced from the Ministry stockpiles. Through this process, it can efficiently develop durable road infrastructure throughout the country at a reduced cost.

“This recycled material is being utilised effectively for the reconstruction of the Manzanilla-Mayaro Road.

“The Prime Minister stopped in Sangre Grande where he observed the progress of works at the connector road linking the Churchill Roosevelt Highway to the Eastern Main Road in Guiaco, Sangre.

“He then journeyed to Manzanilla where he saw the works on the road to Mayaro. The road stretches approximately 26 kilometres long and connects the communities of Sangre Grande, Caigual and Manzanilla to Ortoire, Mayaro and Guayaguayare.”

Accompanying Dr Rowley were Minister of Works and Transport Rohan Sinanan; Minister in the Ministry of Works and Transport Richie Sookhai; Minister of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries Kazim Hosein; Minister in the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries Avinash Singh; Chairman of the National Infrastructure Development Company Limited (NIDCO) Herbert George; and other officials of the Ministry of Works.
