Members of the Highway Re-Route Movement (HRM) will appear tomorrow before a panel of experts, led by Dr James Armstrong.
The meeting will take place at the Professional Centre Building, Fitz Blackman Drive, Wrightson Road Extension, Port-of-Spain.
Armstrong, an Independent senator, is head of a committee which will determine whether the social impact of the Debe to Mon Desir segment of the San Fernando to Point Fortin Highway has been adequately addressed.
Environmentalist and leader of the movement, Dr Wayne Kublalsingh, yesterday said “ordinary members” would tell the committee why they believed the Debe to Mon Desir section of the highway must be reviewed.
“Those ordinary members would say how they believe their homes and lives would be directly affected,” he added. He said that was the first time ordinary members would be meeting with the committee.
The movement already had submitted several documents to the committee and would continue to hand in more, Kublalsingh added.
He said: “We have submitted our reports and proposals to the committee and we have other documents to had in which we believe would be quite helpful.
“Later on we will have our technical experts meet with the committee.”
Describing the relationship between the movement and Armstrong as cordial and fruitful, Kublalsingh said he was pleased with its progress. Armstrong said yesterday things were progressing “quite well.”
It was the promise of an independent review which persuaded Kublalsingh to end his 21-day hunger strike.
