I SEE today (24 February 2014) that the Vazon coast road is closed in sections for the next five weeks. No problem, I thought, until I saw what was going on. It appears that the road is being ripped up, presumably to be resurfaced at some point. This road is probably the best-surfaced road on the island and is in no way needing any refurbishment. What a complete waste of time and money, not to mention five weeks of inconvenience to drivers. In five weeks, the French could probably build five miles of motorway.
