Lovell pleased with bridge work undertaken in City East, but says more work needs to be done on the waterways

Harold Lovell, Political Leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP) and its Candidate for St. John’s City East, is expressing concern over the drainage programme now underway in the constituency and other areas.

The Department of the Environment is engaged in the upgrade of the drainage system that leads water from other communities and through City East.  So far, bridges are being constructed to prevent the usual flooding when there is heavy rainfall.

Lovell says he is pleased with the work being undertaken; however, the waterways, in his opinion, are still not being addressed adequately.
