The Highway Reroute Movement is once again calling for an independent forensic probe into the collapse of the Solomon Hochoy Highway extension project to Point Fortin.
 
The group held a press conference in San Fernando on Sunday the movement and its supporters are also calling for persons to be held accountable for the wastage of tax payers' money.
Activist and Leader of the Highway Re-route movement Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh says the people's representatives in the Lower House of Parliament need to respond to the waste of the country's money.
 
At Sunday's Press Conference at the OWTU headquarters in San Fernando, Dr. Kublalsingh was joined by lawyer and fellow activist, Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj, Movement for Social Justice Leader David Abdullah and President of the the Federation of Independent Trade Unions and NGOs, Joseph Remy. 
 
The trade unionist said after the many warnings from the Re- route Movement before and during the project, all of which were ignored, someone needs to stand the bounce.
 
After having paid the full price for a highway extension we do not have, partially constructed by a company that is in bankruptcy and cannot be sued to recover the money, for work that is sub-standard, the Re-Route Movement is insisting that the country needs to recover its money in cash or jail time.
