Prime Minister Skerrit claims the Roseau River Defense Project on the Riverbank is intended to mitigate against these risks that comes with the water flowing through the city
Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit promises that the Roseau River Defense Project on the River bank, will be completed by early September, 2019.
He claims that the Project costs a total of 15 million dollars, saying, “We have embarked on a very expansive river defense project overtime. We have approached the construction of river walls on a face basis. One can appreciate the importance of these river walls to the safety of lives and property because we have the beauty of our river flowing to the city, but that also brings certain risks and we are trying to mitigate against these risks.”
Skerrit was speaking alongside his cabinet colleagues on the project site, earlier this week. He promised that a promenade will be built to enhance the aesthetics of the city.
