Grande highway a sign of progress*

It is with serious concern that I learned of an injunction filed by Fishermen and Friends of the Sea to halt construction of the highway from Cumuto to Sangre Grande.
In a Facebook post on Papa Bois Conservation’s Facebook page, a spokesman for the group stated the highway was being built from “nowhere to nowhere”—a statement I find extremely condescending to the people of Sangre Grande.
It is my hope opponents to the highway’s construction can recognise the long-term value and potential economic benefits this development can bring to Trinidad and Tobago. The highway will link many of the communities in the east and enhance the already rapid growth of Arima, Sangre Grande, all the way to Toco.
