THE EDITOR, Sir:
This is an open letter to Member of Parliament Pearnel Charles.
My name is Sherome Adams. I am a student of Clarendon College in form 2A. My concern is with the roads to travel to and from school. Going to school from May Pen, the bad road conditions start from near Bucknor. If you travel from Cocoa Piece to Turners, it gets worse.
Recent rainfall has caused the thoroughfare to be in a bad state. In some sections of the road, vehicles on one side have to stop to let the other drivers pass. This has caused disputes between motorists.
School starts at 7:45 a.m., and the deplorable road conditions cause the journey to be longer than usual, which oftentimes cause students like me to be marked late or absent.
I am the monitor in my class and seek that students be punctual and mannerly. I have recently received complaints from students that the road from Frankfield, or even farther, is in a very bad state. At times, students have to walk from Summerfield (which is about three or more miles from school) to get to classes. This has caused many other students from different forms to be late.
The students of Clarendon College would be grateful if Mr Charles could do something to repair the roadways.
