Barbados Underground

The news that a bridge collapsed in Genoa, Italy killing 39 people (so far) reminded the blogmaster of the uneasy feeling he experiences while crossing the Charles Duncan O”Neal Bridge in Bridgetown. Not so much the Chamberlin Bridge. On more than one occasion the gentle query was raised on BU (who wants to shout fire)- what is the protocol for inspecting bridges/structures in Barbados to assure public safety?

The recent revelation of two unmaintained tanks connected to the sewage plant have served to heighten the concern of the blogmaster. Successive governments have demonstrated an inability- is it aversion?- to manage a robust maintenance programme of government assets.

We should learn from the tragic event in Italy.
