What happens when some people speak out.

"PRESIDENT OF the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA), Horace Peterkin, is calling on the National Works Agency (NWA) to fast-track repairs along the Flankers main road in Montego Bay, St. James." http://www.jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20051207/lead/lead9.html

In less that 5 days after crying out for the need for the Flankers Main Road to be repaired, work is on the way if not completed by now. The road is not being patched. The road is being completlyd resurfaced and drains running beside it being cleaned. This monday morning those who have to use the road should be very happy at the transformation that occured over the past week-end.

This road is the sole entry and exit point between the Montego Bay city centre plus the airport and big hotels such as Sandals Montego Bay, Half Moon and the Ritz-Carlton. You don't have to wonder that this could be the reason why the road is now being fixed.

I am wondering though that now that the road that passes the community of Flankers is now being fixed if the road that leads into Flankers will be fixed too. There are doubts though because although that road is in a worse condition that the one being fixed the residents that use that road have no one speaking out for them.
