A resident, frustrated over the state of the Guyabois Road, has challenged Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre and Infrastructure Minister Stephenson King to take a drive.

However, the resident wants Pierre and King to use their private vehicles.

“I am not sure if they would accept my challenge,” the resident told St. Lucia Times.

But he said he would give up some of his valuable time to the drive from the Vieux Fort Highway at the Guyabois Gap, up Guyabois Road to the Saltibus Gap.

“Let’s see who will take me up on it,” the resident, who said he is a qualified A1 Advanced Emergency driver, asserted.

Frustrated residents have erected a sign on the Guyabois Road in Saltibus, urging caution and declaring it the worst maintained stretch in Saint Lucia.

The sign advises removing dentures, adjusting bra straps, and securing ‘your nuts.’

“Welcome to the worst maintained road in St. Lucia courtesy of St Lucia government,” it declared.

“Fight for our right to have a road, not a riverbed. Together, we can make a difference,” the sign, which appeared on Monday, said.

The residents have lamented that emergency vehicles cannot access their homes, farmers cannot tend to their crops, and the community’s garbage collection has been affected.
