RESIDENTS of Brasso Venado are warning that should the roads leading to their village not be fixed shortly, there will be road protests.
Brasso Venado is a village near Flanagin Town, central Trinidad. Last month, the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) "destroyed" the road in order to install pipelines, said resident Eve Rock.
She said about 200 residents who live near the Brasso Venado Main Road and Allen Road were affected. Rock, 64, said, "There are two bad spots where it naturally sinks.
"There are two big holes. When school (Brasso Venado Government Primary School) opens the teachers will not be able to go to school there because they would not be able to get through.
"Some areas are impassable and people have to walk out to get a taxi instead of using their cars."
She added, "We want to get our roads fixed. We are not protesting or anything. We just want to highlight the issue so that somebody can come and help us get our roads fixed."
WASA corporate communications manager Ellen Lewis said road reinstatement works would begin tomorrow.
She said the water project involved the installation of 2,538 metres of water line at a cost of $2.6 million.
According to Lewis said, "The next step is the construction of a booster along Alleyne Road to pump water to Brasso Venado from the Navet Waterworks. When this project is completed, residents will be in receipt of a pipeborne water supply for the first time."
