Prime Minister of Dominica has made a visit to the Petite Savanne Constituency on Thursday and took an idea of the ongoing developmental activities on the land.

During the visit, PM Skerrit said that the new Bagatelle Health and Wellness Center is finally completed and will be at work soon. He further said that the government authorities have decided to knock down the old health centre and construct sixteen (16) climate-resilient housing units for the people of Bagatelle.

 

 

 

Meanwhile, he added that Fond St Jean would also construct the small pedestrian bridge. At the same time, in Pichelin, the government authorities will improve the safety of an existing bridge and renew Chatwell Road, which links Pichelin to Bellevue Chopin.

PM Skerrit and his team also made stops in Dubuque and Geneva to check the plans and implementation of the starting of work on the Loubiere to Bagatelle Road project.

He also made a visit at the Virgin Lane and River Street in Roseau Central constituency with the Parliamentarian Melissa Skerrit and Minister of Public Works Cassani Laville.

Meanwhile, Melissa Skerrit said, “This walkthrough was geared at compiling pertinent information for an upcoming project which will address the drainage and sidewalk issues which are affecting the residents and nearby schools.”

Melissa Skerrit further added that the upcoming project would also see the completion of the ongoing “project Footpath,” which is aiming to provide a safe way to the residents’ houses.

The major project is inclusive of upgrading sidewalks to have wheelchair accessibility and the placement of underground cables while presenting an aesthetically pleasing view. PM Skerrit, along with the team, has also paid a visit to the locations for the New Roseau Health Center and Upper River Bank apartment buildings.

At the same time, people are excited about the upcoming development projects that are yet to be completed.
