LETTER: Just Imagine the Traffic Confusion

The content originally appeared on: Antigua News Room

Dear Editor,

I just saw an announcement that Old Parham Road will be closed from Saturday from Airport Road all the way down to First Caribbean Bank, for road works. This closure will be for weeks. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR WHATSAPP GROUP.

Where is the planning? The road from stadium to Sprugoo Gas Station is still not finished. Just imagine the traffic confusion.

All of the traffic that would usually come through Pigotts will now have to go onto Airport Road and head to Factory Road. Unless there is Traffic Police, 24/7 on Factory Road and at every junction there will be gridlock. No one will be going any where as there are more vehicles than roads in Antigua.

Has there been any kind of planning, discussion with the businesses that will be impacted and education and information for the public on diversions?

I am calling on the Traffic Commissioner to blanket the media and explain these changes to the general public.

Lord help us.
