Persons cannot sit in certain areas in Road Town without having to endure the unpleasant smell of raw sewage, according to Junior Minister of Tourism, Hon. Archibald Christian.

The National Democratic Party (NDP) administration in the past boasted about being able to tackle the issue of raw sewage running in and around Road Town.

“I am not ashamed to say it, we now have the stench throughout Road Town again. It was something that was quelled for a bit but now it has come back,” he said recently.

Mr Christian added, “you go to certain places to sit down and you get constantly interrupted by the stench coming across the harbour throughout Road Town.”

The Junior Minister of Tourism said that it is time that government commit to
deal with the sewerage problems in the Territory, mentioning the seventh and eight districts.

“We really have to move on with the sewerage projects in the 7th and 8th district and in Road Town,” he said.
