St. Vincent & Grenadines: As volcano threatens, questions about Chateau’s incomplete bridge

In the wake of last Saturday’s scare in North Leeward, triggered by rumours of an explosive eruption of La Soufriere, two constituents have raised questions about the town’s incomplete bridge.

Construction is underway on the bridge in Chateaubelair that collapsed in November 2017 during the passage of a trough system, resulting in the use of a one-way bypass road since then.

And, with La Soufriere having been erupting effusively since Dec. 28, a rumour of an explosive eruption Saturday night resulted in some residents of Chateaubelair and Fitz Hughes packing in anticipation of evacuation.

The two constituents are now asking questions about the incomplete bridge.

The constituents are Chateaubelair residents Troy Prince, who campaigned against the ruling Unity Labour Party in the lead up to the November 2020 general elections and Terranza Franklyn, who campaigned on behalf of the ULP’s Carlos James in the 2015 polls.
