“Under construction as we speak, the La Retraite Road and bridge are under construction,” Montoute said.

He continued: “In the Piat Housing Development work has begun, the Marisule, Grande Riviere, Union Road has begun and Cardinal Road in Monchy has begun.”

The MP went on to name a list of roads, which he intends to complete before the 2020 calendar year is over.
