The Minister of Works and Infrastructure, the Honourable Dr. Surujrattan Rambachan, wishes to apologise to commuters and residents who have been affected by roads that have been milled and not paved. The inconvenience is deeply regretted, however, it is due to a malfunctioning of the bitumen plant at Petrotrin and exhaustion of inventories.

In order to alleviate this problem Lake Asphalt will receive a shipment of bitumen from Barbados on Wednesday 10th September. As well, a shipment from Jamaica is expected on Monday 15th September. The Ministry of Works and Infrastructure wishes to assure that it is doing all that is necessary to bring this inconvenience to an end in the shortest possible time.
