Road Improvements Boosting Business for Mechanics & Car Parts


Popular mechanic, Everette Fenton, says mechanics and garage owners are seeing a boost in business due to the many road works going on around the country.

Mr. Fenton is the operator of the auto mechanic store chain, Fenton’s Garage.

The government has embarked on a number of improvement and refurbishing projects on major roadways around the country.

Some of the roadworks have routinely caused massive build ups of traffic around the country over the past few months. But Mr. Fenton says many vehicles are also being damaged by the roadworks.

He says mechanics, garages and auto-parts suppliers are enjoying increased business due to the damage.

Mr. Fenton says part of the reason businesses are seeing an increase in revenue is because the authorities have failed to put in the requisite alternative routes.
