The village of Laudat had come under serious threat from being cut off from the rest of the island following a severe slope and road slippage in the Bayak area on the road to Laudat caused by the heavy rains of Hurricane Dean.

 

As a result Government moved in quickly to redress the situation to ensure continued access to the village and the many tourist sites in the area.

 

The Bayak intervention cost $2 million ECD and consisted of two segments, one geared at facilitating immediate access and the other at developing a long-term solution.
