If you are go frequently through ( or live in ) the region of Quatre Bornes – Palma, the huge sewage works have probably caused enormous inconveniences to you. Without talking about the wear and tear in your vehicle. To tell you the truth, I pity the suspension system of my car. Launched a few years back, the works have turned the region into a huge chantier, the road network into a labyrinte, the deviations into huge traffic jams and the environment itself into a noisy and dirty area.
I have stopped counting the number of times I have seen them digging again into newly tarred roads (see above). Or the numerous places with inadequate and confusing road warning signs. And very often, there’s also a big lack of police officers on the road to give proper directives to road users.
The benefits of a good sewage system in the town cannot be denied but sometimes I ask myself the following question : Was it wisely planned so as to minimize inconveniences to road users and wastage of resources as well as the taxpayers’ money? Do they really care after all?
