Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan says as he is the minister of the road and not Machel, pothole elimination on the road is a priority for Carnival.

He was speaking at the Ministry of Works official start of the road maintenance programme at the ministry's head office, corner of London and Richmond Streets, Port-of-Spain, yesterday.

The Ministry of Works and Transport teamed up with the Ministry of Rural Development and Local Government, the Ministry of Public Utilities, their agencies, Port-of-Spain and Diego Martin Corporations and WASA to begin the pre-Carnival road patching programme, which is a part of the National Road Maintenance Initiative.

Sinanan said “The routes earmarked include Carnival routes. We want to ensure that on the Carnival routes we eliminate as much infringement as possible.

“This is why the programme is Port-of-Spain and Diego Martin, we move next to San Fernando and Pt Fortin.

“We want to look at major Carnival cities to try to get as much work done before Carnival, but it will continue after Carnival as we go along.”

When asked why the combined agencies were attacking potholes for Carnival, he said Carnival was on the road, he loved Carnival and played mas and that when someone's foot, vehicles or carts went down in one of these potholes, it was not too comfortable.

Sinanan said even Opposition held corporations with Carnival venues will be repaired providing funding was available.

Also present were Local Government Minister Kazim Hosein and Public Utilities Minister Robert Le Hunte.
