Government isn't doing anything to sort out our roads which is interesting. It's actually going to be cheaper for them to pave the roads (at least those on the south side of the island) than it is to leave them in their present deplorable state.
In the past 2 months we've had a LOT of rain. And, we've had a LOT of first time visitors. I doubt that many of those first-timers will return to our island. It has been pathetic and embarrassing watching them struggle through our disgusting "roads." As a country we will be percieved by those tourists as being backward and 4th-world. In a sense they will see us as being a rip-off. You know, the glorious brochures and websites and the muddy reality.
Next year's May, June and July won't be as busy. In fact, next year's rainy season (June to November) will probably fall waayyyy off due to feedback about this years vacation debacles. People will simply not want to come.
So, less tourists, less taxes, everyone here tightens their belts and that means EVEN less taxes. Cheaper for the government just to bring in Medinas Construction and "Pave the damn roads, one time!"
Oh, and lots of speed bumps please. Just because we'll have good roads doesn't mean we have to have fast roads.
And with the roads south of the bridge sorted out the town council will be able to devote more resources to basic road maintenance north of the bridge.
Of course, such a wonderful pipe dream will require the PUP government working with the local UDP town council and area rep and vice-versa.
Now I KNOW I'm in La La Fantasty DreamLand.
