DeFreitas laments the state of City South roads, particularly in the pothole-ridden Belmont and Briggins communities

The United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. John’s City South is decrying the condition of the constituency roads, especially in the Belmont and Briggins areas.

Franz deFreitas says the roadways are in a deplorable state, with massive holes, and are in need of paving.

Not only are these potholes creating a breeding ground for mosquitoes, but in order to avoid them, motorists are forced to drive in people’s yards, the UPP Candidate observes.

Accordingly, deFreitas is chastising the area’s parliamentary representative, Labour Party incumbent Steadroy “Cutie” Benjamin, for not repairing the roads over the past eight years, nor during the decades he has held office.
