Koloa bypass road is getting where?
Your front page article (Nov. 29, “Koloa bypass road is getting there”) insults the intelligence of your readers.
Why has the road not been striped? Why have the guardrails not been installed.
What a farce.
The Lihu’e interchange done in record time by Goodfellow Brothers is an example of how legitimate companies operate and complete their work on time or ahead of schedule. This joke of a project still drags on, even though the paving has been completed for two months. It should be noted that the coordination with the utility companies was so lax that the road was finally paved around the telephone poles, and that now there exist a series of holes that are filled with water and will surely continue to erode for the life of the road.
I know nothing of Rego Construction except that I have repeatedly read about unpaid taxes by this company. I asked the mayor’s office three weeks ago about why the road was not open. As a daily commuter from Po’ipu to Kapa’a and Lihu’e, I need the road finished. I was told the county has yet to obtain title to the road. If that is why the road is not open, say so. Don’t imply it in the middle of the article, and please spare us that Rego Construction couldn’t finish the road on time for the Grand Slam because Doreen Sanchez-Rego wants to give us the best possible road for the contract.
The road is done except for the striping and the guardrails and maybe the transfer or ownership, not because Rego wants us to have the best road or we haven’t figured out what to call it. Give us a break. How stupid do you think your readers are?
