Bring back S.P.D.C

Re: Watch those potholes 

Fa’afetai Mata’afa for the reminder once again. This time last year, I remember your article on this very topic - Potholes, a by-product of poor road design and workmanship (or lack of) on our infrastructure and esp. the roads and drainage.

This time round and as the saying goes - “same unprintable” - “different depth” Good drainage + good engineered road designs = less potholes and less maintenance for roads and cars alike. It’s not like we have four seasons (environmental influences).

Cut that in half - either very wet, or very hot and surely, with all the engineering brains that Samoa has - there must be a solution somewhere. Crumble some numbers - mathematics has a lot of solutions for real life issues.

Just ask any contractor or construction worker. Or is it a ‘spend less’ money thingy? We are not (as tax payers) not getting more bang for our buck! Hopeless!!! Bring back S.P.D.C!!!
