Residents of Las Lomas and environs should see improved roadways in the new year, assures Foster Cummings, Minister in the Ministry of Works and Transport and the MP for La Horquetta.

Speaking with Guardian Media on Monday 21 December 2020, Minister Cummings said he plans to undertake a patching programme that would bring some much needed relief to motorists.

Councillor for Las Lomas / San Rafael, Balmati Gosyne, said areas in need of urgent repair include Chin Chin Road, Las Lomas Number 1, 2 and 3, the Caroni South Bank Road, Madras Road and the Brazil Main Road. 

Gosyne said residents have been complaining that they have to do extensive repairs to their vehicles at a time they are cash strapped.
