  1. The APNU government is wasting tax payers money. There were nothing wrong with Carifesta Avenue which hardly have any traffic from as early as 5.30pm on weekdays and even sometimes during the day which is worst on weekends. Are there research to prove that this road needs redesigning? Gross incompetence, no vision and lack of wisdom on the part of APNU Government. A wise person would have spend the money to complete the the incomplete East Coast Road from Better Hope to far as far as possible or even redesign Mandela Avenue and Back Road as to what is being done to Carifesta Avenue.
