MORUGA/Tableland MP Michelle Benjamin on Thursday lamented that concerns about a major landslip and a shortage of pipeborne water at Robert Village in Tableland have not been addressed.

Benjamin, a UNC MP, made her comment in response to a protest residents held there earlier in the day.

She said, "The protests took place this morning as residents are asking the Government to repair the massive landslip as promises were made since December 2020."

Benjamin added that residents are saying temporary work on the landslip has failed. She also said the residents are asking Government to address the shortage of pipeborne water supply in the area.

Benjamin said Mayaro MP Rushton Paray raised this issue last year, as this affects his constituents as well.

Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan could not be reached for comment.

Last December, Sinanan and a team visited the area and he said temporary work would be done. But he added, "The area is prone to landslips."

Sinanan said there was a long-term plan to address landslips in the area.
