Mullins Bay blog asks “Where is the money we borrowed from the IDB?”

$75 Million borrowed for West Coast Sewage Project – Now we have no money, no sewage project.

“Several years ago Government secured $75M from the same IDB for a West Coast Sewage Project, an urgent necessity if we are going to save our reefs – let alone have bath-able/swim-able beaches; but where has all that money gone?  No one seems to know.  We still have no sewage treatment on the west coast and we are building yet more multi-storey beachfront condos.  Where is the IDB’s oversight in all of this?  Do they give a damn beyond ensuring the collecting of  interest on these loans on the backs of poor Barbadians?”

    WHEN the west coast gets its sewerage construction project under way,
    west coast people gyne BAWL.

    The sister project created much bacchanal along the South coast when it was happening
    (Bajan memories done forget dat..)
    but at least there is a parallel system in inner roads to the coast road, along most of the length of Hiway 7
    (south coast road)…just a few hundred yds. inland.

    West coast has no such alternatives.
    The only alternative is to get UP to hiway 2A and mek yuh way into Btown that way…but I guess they’ll have to get used to it.
    I certainly wouldn’t wish it on them, but it has to happen sooner or later!
    I’m just glad I don’t live there.

    Remember when the “strategy” was to delay the West Coast Sewage Project until after the Cricket World Cup so as not to cause traffic snarls with the high number of visitors travelling to and from matches?

    What a load of old rubbish that was.
