I find it strange that they're re-routing the main road up in the hills as it looks like on the picture. I havn't seen the map showing the re-route yet, but as far as I recall on the mountain side of the road there are steep hills in addition to a river that runs in a small gorge. Does anybody know where they intend to make the re-route hit the main road again?

The road diversion is a disgrace to all Seychellois. Why are the Geers being protected by the Government? They must be giving millions to Sppf for election. THey are also destroying Lislette at Port Glau soon and nobody will stop them. Seselwa ouver zot lizye pou sov nou bann beach avan y tro tar.

Geers are free to support who they choose. Do not push them in a corner to th epoint they have no choice.

They too are not fools.

But the Government is under obligation to fully disclose details of this transaction. The Public is entitled to know what they will get out of the proposal.

It is Government's obligation to negotiat for the people's interest. This is where P.P. and SPPF fail us.

For instance, where is the Developmental Impact assessment contributions for 4 Seasons, Raffles, etc... not a cent. But they break our roads, use up our electricity grid, and use up all our water.

One idea For Rene on his Birthday-

(it is FREE, we pay for his bad ideas)

Introduce Development Impact Fees (DIF) for big projects to contribute to our infastruture.

This represents million of dollars in revenue Rene and Michel missed.

when they were begging these companies to come here.

Happy Birthday Rene, enjoy your free gift "idea".

Wow, Mr Gill.

Is Geers a good friend of yours? Suddenly, only transparent transactions will satiate your foolishness?

Had it been someone else whom you do not like, then it would have been pandemonium!

But then again, the old girl does have a nice pair of tits.

Cheers,

Does anybody know where the road will by-pass the existing and who will be affected by it in any way? can anyone post a map showing the diversion? And where is Sunset going to expand? The area where there used to be an old bungalow(one of these "lakaz ameriken" which was moved further uphills and now houses expat Indians on Geers payroll as Seychellois are not good enough for him) or further North?

Geers bought Sunset and the property around from Lablache back in the 80s, including his house which he would recieve a pension for till the day he died(or till Mrs Lablache died should she outlive him). The Mrs went first and Lablache followed some years later. The latter died alone lonely after making enemies with just about everyone around him. He now lies in an unmarked grave at Glacis cemetary. The least that Dutch bastard Geers could have done was to pay for a simple grave for the man who literally gave him a fortune for a bit of change. Mrs Lablache's grave had to be made by friends as they had little or no family left.

But back to the issue regarding access to the beach. Someone wrote that no parking spaces were planned for visitors to the beach. Well, today there are no parking spaces there and everyone going for a swim either walks from home or parks further North of Sunset and walks a few hundred metres to access teh beach through a little path from the North end. The property there doesn't belong to Geers as far as I know so he won't be able to say anything about accessing his land. And as we all know it is forbidden to trespass if not allowed to, but coming in the seaway is 100% legal. And who passed that law may we ask? was it not the great DICKtator Albert Rene?

Look, all I am saying is the onous is one government to protect the Public's interest.

Attacking Geers personally does not help the cause or make us more right. They are not public figures. They are private figures.

The standard of treatment publically must be different.

This is a case that someone should simply state the facts step by step publish and let the opinions of the Public be known since that is what Government says it wants.

Then lobby protest and do what is normal if that is the general consensus. Glacis people do not know why this road will benefit them. They need to know.

Gill should be ashamed to support the Geers,he should refrain from commenting on things that he does not know. The questions he should find clarications: Find out the Lablache story .Find out the L'islette story. What did the Geers got in exchange for 200sq meters at Quincy Street? How did they get the property at Bel Ombre? How did they get planning permission at Village on Praslin? There are now rumours that they are buying a building in Victoria for Sr 60m.Where will the money come from ? Who were behind Don Talma not getting his planning permission. There is also a property at Providence not even developed.
If there was money stolen from the state backing the Geers, what would you say Gill.Find out who their backers are.

Why is it not OK for Gill to support the Geers and their projects based on the fact that they are running a business and making investments and should be treated as equal citizens? Do we know for a fact that Geers has stolen money or conned others to achieve what he has now? The Lablache story is true indeed making the man a thoughtless and consciousless bastard, no doubts there, but Gill does have a point when he says that the Geers also have a right to be heard.

I've skimmed through the report, all 60 odd pages of it, and it is I must say well written, but evidently an ordered report to justify the diversion. The funniest part is the conclusion on its last pages that states that petrol can be saved as the road will be 50m shorter than the existing so less fuel will be used. Whichever idiot wrote that must be off his rocker as teh current road has a lowpoint as it passes the river, naturally with decline on either side. The new one will go upphils coming from the South, and downhills coming from the North. I don't know what kind of car the author drives, but most normal ones use more fuel going uphills so that argument isn't worth the paper it's written on. He also mentions road safety in teh report and that a speed limit should be introduced to reduce noise pollution and the liability of accidents. As if that would be respected by motorists.

The Main point however is as usual the lack of finding more simple solutions to the problem, a typical PL thing. I cannot see why the Geers cannot expand their hotel and build a pedestrian and/or light vehicle bridge over or under the existing road, the same type that existed at the Vista do Mar some years back.

And who is to pay for the road diversion? Geers himself or will that be sponsored by the tax payers, i.e another case of, as a blogger once wrote, "feed my livestock and I'll save the cowpats for you whilst I myself will drink the milk and eat the meat".

Personally I don't see that the government should be using money on such a project when we are still stuck in quicksand after the financial crunch of last year. Our airline is about to go bust and needs millions, our power plants needs upgrading(and I'm sure Sunset's expansion will be another load to it) and we simply should be using money elsewhere. If Geers so desperately wants to make even more money, then I suggest that he invests elsewhere in Seychelles or makes the best of the land he has purchased for change from the late Mr Lablache. We can't even afford to properly maintain our existing roads and Geers wants us to build a new????

My letter will be sent withing the next few days.

Rumour says that the road conversion has been stopped by James Michel and an investigation ordered. Can anybody confirm that?

Thanks for your helpful article. Other thing is that mesothelioma cancer
is generally attributable to the breathing of fibers from asbestos, which is a carcinogenic material.

It's commonly seen among laborers in the structure industry who may have long exposure to asbestos. It can be caused by living in asbestos insulated buildings for a long of time, Genetics plays a huge role, and some people are more vulnerable on the risk in comparison with others.

Hey there! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!
